Mindanao Terror Suspects Fall

Three men have been arrested in Koronadal City for alleged links to a deadly weekend bomb attack in a crowded market there that killed nine people and wounded 26 others. One of the suspects was nabbed in a raid on Koronadal’s Muslim neighborhood, police investigator SPO4 Jonathan Jovero said. Twelve men were released after being rounded up and questioned. In Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte, government troops captured seven Muslim separatists, including a commander who participated in the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) raid on that town last May 4, military officials said yesterday. Thirty-four people were killed and 26 others wounded as 150 MILF raiders pillaged Siocon’s commercial district in a dawn raid on May 4, the day of the town fiesta. One of the arrested suspects was believed also behind the abduction of an Italian priest several years ago. A 49-year-old jobless man, Alex Luntayan, in whose house the suspected bombers allegedly slept before Saturday’s attack on the Koronadal public market, was being held, Jovero said. Full Story
