MILF's behead Philippine troops

Rebels behead Philippine troops

Islamic militants in the southern Philippines have killed 14 marines, beheading 10 of them, a military spokesman has said.

Nine other marines were wounded and at least four rebels were killed during the incident on Basilan island.

The clash took place as the marines were searching for an Italian priest.

The priest was seized in June by kidnappers believed to be from either Abu Sayyaf or the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

Both groups are seeking an independent Islamic state in the southern Philippines.

Ceasefire violation?

The priest, named as Giancarlo Bossi, was seized by armed men near the coastal village of Bulawan near Zamboanga on 10 June.

Marine spokesman Lt Col Ariel Caculitan said the marines ran into a group of some 300 armed men during their search for him, triggering the clash.

Lt Col Caculitan said that 14 marines had been killed. The number of rebels who died is unconfirmed, but reports vary from four to at least 20.

Initially, the military assumed that the rebels were mainly from the Abu Sayyaf group - the smallest but deadliest of several Islamic groups fighting the Philippine government.

But army officers say that Abu Sayyaf gunmen do not have a presence in the area where Rev Bossi was kidnapped.

A spokesman for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) later confirmed that some its members had been involved in the clash, despite the fact the MILF is currently engaged in peace talks with the government.

Mohagher Iqbal, the chief negotiator for the MILF, said the marines had attacked one of the group's strongholds, violating a ceasefire agreement, and that his forces had therefore fought back.

"The incident could have been avoided if the government had co-ordinated with our forces in Basilan before they actually moved in," he told reporters.

But he denied that the MILF was responsible for the beheadings, or that it was involved in the kidnapping of the priest.

I can't find any info on this guys for reasons relating to their name , I tried searching in wiki for MILF and miraculously found them. They seem to have some relation to Al-Queda although they deny it.

Check your latest Asianews today. It even didn't mention that MILF beheaded the Filipino Marines. The priest was living among Christian-dominated region that shares to Muslims and indigenous people. MILF was indeedly acknowledged that they only shot 10 Filipinos and strictly ordered their fighters not to mutilate.

In the Phillippines - just like USA - everybody can have gun; that was misused by criminals out there (most of them were working for dirty filthy rich landlords). I suspected those worthless cockroaches hitchhiked MILF.

They "ONLY" shot 10 Filipinos but ordered their fighters not to mutilate.

So reassuring. So this SOBs will only kill you, but don't worry, they won't behead your dead body!!

See, Islam CAN be accommodating to the kufrs.

At least the so-called "militants" will look like good Samaritans when you find yourself inside infamous North Korean concentration camp with no turning point...

This is in Filipino. You can clearly see the misfiring mortar rounds. These men are brave as you can also clearly see marines fighting back even with wounds. I do not know if we have any Filipinos in this forum.

Philippines: Muslim rebels behead troops


Basilan, 11 July (AKI)- Almost 30 people have been killed in the southern Philippines in the heaviest fighting in months between troops and Muslim rebels, both sides said on Wednesday. Military spokesman Lt. Col. Ariel Caculitan said the militants had killed 14 marines, beheading 10 of them.

The country's largest Muslim rebel group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), said its cadres defended themselves when marines moved into their encampment on the island of Basilan on Tuesday, triggering a fierce nine-hour gunbattle.

Nine other marines were wounded and at least four rebels were killed during the incident, according to the Filipino military.

The conflict occurred while the marines were searching for Italian priest, Father Giancarlo Bossi, who was seized by kidnappers believed to be from either the Abu Sayyaf terrorist group or the MILF.

Father Bossi was seized by armed men near the coastal village of Bulawan near Zamboanga on 10 June.

Marine spokesman Lt Col Ariel Caculitan said the marines encountered some 300 armed men during their search for him.

"We were totally outnumbered and we had no time to recover enemy casualties but we have reports of dead and injured on their side," Caculitan said.

A spokesman for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) later confirmed its members had been involved in the clash, even though the MILF is involved in peace talks with the government.

Mohagher Iqbal, the chief negotiator for the MILF, said the marines had attacked one of the group's strongholds, violating a ceasefire agreement, and his forces had fought back.

"The incident could have been avoided if the government had co-ordinated with our forces in Basilan before they actually moved in," he told reporters. "Our forces were attacked, we only defended ourselves."

But he denied that the MILF was responsible for the beheadings, or that it was involved in the priest's kidnapping.

Iqbal said the rebels lost four fighters and seven were wounded, but believed they had killed 25 soldiers, seized 27 assault rifles and destroyed two military trucks.

Despite the conflicting accounts, both versions indicate it was the single biggest battle in the restive southern Philippines for months. At least 30 rebels, three soldiers and one civilian were killed in clashes on the nearby island of Jolo in April.

The MILF was founded in 1977 and has a long-term goal of creating a separate Islamic state in the Philippines. Based in central Mindanao, it is believed to have 12,000 members.
