ILIGAN CITY, Philippines – A group of still unidentified armed men snatched the one-year old son of a Pagadian City-based Canadian businessman and the boy’s nanny around 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

Superintendent Julius Munez, Pagadian City police chief, said the armed men barged into the house of the family of the Canadian trader on Sto. Rosario Road in Dau village and took the boy and the nanny at gunpoint.

The boy’s father was not around when the gunmen struck.

Munez said police have launched a search and rescue operation to recover the victims.

    Time to say good bye to Philippines.
    It’s not safe anymore.
    Plus inflation is very high and dollar very low.

    Philippines…which coddles murderers and promotes kidnapping is getting closer each day of being placed on the international terrorist country list….unless China takes it over and installs its death penalty

    sure beats the slap on the wrist sentence they get now

    TO Mr Jimenez, Head of Philippines Tourism Office. Since you had once said that security is not a priority in the country where crime killing kidnapping on both locals and foreigners is almost a daily affair and that countries like Mexico and Brazil they had managed to attract tourists despite of high crime rate, therefore You got what you wish for, The Philippines is fast becoming like Mexico Brazil and even to surpass Yemen Somalia, soon when security is not taken as important.

    What does Philippines has to offer, except to boast her beauty of islands, ( which is true though), but inaccessible to many of these islands, and mind you, tourists does not have the time luxury unlike  the locals who live in The Philippines,, therefore travelling on  air and land in the country is  time consuming ( long hours). tedious and it doe snot justified our money is well spent, Time is Money .
    Another thing is that Philippines is under developing country  and to charge high price similar to developing country is a day light robbery Security? You want to know the truth? Even in violent countries like Mexico and Brazil they tried to give adequate protection/security  on tourism industry, BUT SECURITY IN THE PHILIPPINES SUCKS AND STINKS

    in conclusion   the correct logo for tourism in Philippines should be….. “IT IS MORE DANGEROUS AND A  DAYLIGHT ROBBERY THAN FUN IN PHILIPPINES”
