More Sulu gunmen killed in another shooting, says IGP


More Sulu militants have died in a gunfight with security forces here this afternoon, Tan Sri Ismail Omar said today, without specifying the number.

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) (picture) also said that the security forces were expanding their search operations from Kampung Tanduo to Kampung Tanjung Batu.

“At 4.15pm, there were shoot-outs at three locations in the (Tanjung Batu) village,” Ismail told reporters here today.

“We believe there were some enemies who fell, but we can’t verify the number at this time,” he added.

Armed Forces chief Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin, who was also at the press conference, clarified that only nine bodies of Filipino gunmen were found, out of the 13 Sulu casualties here.

He said that 12 were killed during last Friday’s shoot-out, while one was shot dead this morning.

He added that the authorities were searching for the remaining bodies.

Defence Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi confirmed earlier today that 13 Sulu gunmen were killed after yesterday’s air strikes against Kampung Tanduo, but pointed out that it was unknown how they died as forensic work has yet to be done.
