Radullan Sahiron is a Filipino Islamist terrorist associated with the Abu Sayyaf group. He reportedly took command of the organization following the death of Khadaffy Janjalani in September 2006. The 70-year-old is widely respected throughout the organization, and is one of the few top lieutenants still alive. However, due to his failing health, analysts doubt his ability to lead the group. As of January 22, 2007, he is the most wanted man in the Philippines. He lost his right hand fighting security forces in the 1970's.
