Rizal Day 2000 Blasts Suspect Linked to Davao Bombing

The suspected mastermind in the Rizal Day 2000 bombings in Metro Manila has been linked to the Davao City bombing and is an Afghanistan-trained bomb and demolition expert. Yunos Moclis, a Maranao tribesman, is said to be in his early 40s and allegedly has direct links with the Muslim fundamentalist terror group Jemaah Islamiyah. JI is believed to be the Southeast Asian chapter of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terror network. Sources from the intelligence community said Moclis is one of the leaders of the special operations group (SOG) of the Bangsamoro Islamic Security Force under Alim Mimbantas, a member of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) executive committee. Moclis, the intelligence sources said, was one of the young Muslim converts recruited in the early 1990s who were sent to Afghanistan to fight alongside the Afghans in the resistance to invading troops from the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
