Manila – An Irish Catholic priest abducted by unidentified gunmen in the southern Philippines appeared to be injured, a military commander said Wednesday.
Major General Ben Dolorfino said Columban missionary Michael Sinnott was seen by military informants ‘with blood on his head.’
Dolorfino said the military was coordinating with the separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) amid reports that the 78-year-old priest has been turned over to a commander of the rebel group.
