MANILA, Philippines -- An alleged member of the Abu Sayyaf Group accused of involvement in the 2002 kidnapping of six Jehovah's Witnesses, two of whom were beheaded, was arrested in Zamboanga City Tuesday morning, police said.

Police said Abdul Wahab Hamja alias Amja, of Barangay Recodo, Zamboanga City, was arrested at about 11 a.m. on the strength of a warrant of arrest for six counts of kidnapping and serious illegal detention.

The members of the sect were abducted in Sulu on August 20, 2002 by Abu Sayyaf fighters headed by Radulan Sahiron.
