"Manila, Philippines (CNN) -- The wife of a candidate for governor and about 30 others were abducted Monday morning in the southern Philippines -- with at least 21 of them later killed, army officials said.
The woman was on her way to file her husband's nomination papers, when some 100 armed men abducted her and the others in Maguindanao province, said the candidate, Ibrahim Mangudadatu.
Army Lt. Col. Romeo Brawner said soldiers later recovered 21 bodies -- 13 women and eight men -- from the area where the abduction occurred.
Presidential Adviser on Mindanao Affairs Jesus Dureza has asked the government to place Maguindanao province under a state of emergency.
"This is a gruesome massacre of civilians unequaled in recent history. Even women and media men were not spared. There must be a total stop to this senseless violence," Dureza said told reporters.
Mangudadatu blamed the abduction on the person he is challenging for the governorship of Maguindanao: incumbent Andal Ampatuan, who has held control of the area for the past decade.
The two are competing in elections that will be held on May 10.
The governor could not be reached for comment.
Maguindanao is a Muslim autonomous region out of the control of the central government."

Indication from this incident and others around the world is that a movement within Islam is giving the green light for muslims (acting for government) to kill non-muslims.

"Maj. Gen. Alfredo Cayton, a security official in the province, said in a radio interview that the victims had been shot. But relatives of most of the victims said at least 30 abductees had been killed and many of them beheaded by a group of about 100 men."

Did those people ever hear of security guards?

The other poster was correct, look back in history and usually when there is an attack on innocent people it is done by muslims. Redcoats don't chime in with your bullcrap, this is the very thing we are trying to put a stop to.

Beheadings, yeah, great. Ft Hood, Phillipines both carry the same Islamic principle.
