An Islamic militant accused of kidnapping American tourists has been arrested in the Philippines.
The army says alleged Abu Sayyaf member Burham Sali was detained after a raid on his hideout on the southern island of Mindanao.
He was allegedly involved in the kidnapping of tourists at Dos Palmas in 2001.
Martin Burnham and Guillermo Sobero were killed in captivity after Abu Sayyaf rebels raided a resort off the western island of Palawan in May 2001 and seized several American tourists, and a number of Filipinos.
Mr Burnham’s wife and fellow missionary Gracia Burnham was rescued the following year.
It’s alleged that Sali was also involved in the kidnapping of several school teachers on the southern island of Basilan in 2000.
