Kidnappers of two Americans and two Australians have dropped their ransom demand and now only want to cover their expenses, an emissary said Wednesday.

Abou Amri Taddik, a political officer of the insurgent Moro National Liberation Front, said the kidnappers wanted their expenses paid from the time they abducted the four in the southern Philippines on March 17 until the day of their eventual release.
