Mindanao, Philippines: ISIS Slaughters Filipino Villagers Who Could Not Recite Muslim Prayer

From the Sunday Herald:
Extremists allied with Islamic State are believed to have executed Filipinos in a besieged southern city of the Philippines because they could not cite Islamic prayers, as the death toll from six days of fighting rose to 100, with dozens wounded. 
The bodies of eight men, most of them shot in the head with their hands tied behind their backs, have been found on the outskirts of Marawi, 830 kilometres south of Manila. 
Residents who had fled the city told journalists the militants separated Christians and Muslims by those who could recite the prayers and took away those who could not. 
Attached to one of the bodies was a sign that said “Munafik” (hypocrite).

Only 200 miles north of Gen San. Cannot imagine living that close to ISIS. Hope Dutarte can clean this shit out quick.

They are calling it ISIS which makes it sound new. But it has been going on for a very long time.

My wife's family lived there in the 70's. They had to leave because of the danger to Christians like themselves.

Duarte has a big mouth. Let's see if he can do more than run his trap.

Pasto: Your wife live in Gen San? I have a connection to that city. Have flown there before (Cebu Pac from Manila). Only ever seen a few Muslim there, all obsequious and friendly. Didn't know they were that close or radical. Worried more now.
