Philippine Muslim militants free kidnapped US teen after 5 months
By The Associated Press

MANILA, Philippines (AP) ' The Philippine military says a 14-year-old American boy who was abducted with his mother and cousin by suspected Muslim militants five months ago has been released.

Military spokesman Lt. Col. Randolph Cabangbang says Kevin Lunsmann was released Saturday in Lamitan town on southern Basilan Island, two months after suspected Abu Sayyaf militants released his Filipino-American mother. His Filipino cousin escaped last month.

They were believed to be held for ransom, but Cabangbang did not say if any was paid.



They were vacationing with relatives on an island near southern Zamboanga city when they were snatched July 12 and taken by boat to nearby Basilan. The captors then called the family in Virginia to demand a ransom.
