Bombing Suspect Arrested at Airport

A leading Filipino terrorism suspect wanted for his role in several deadly bombings was arrested wearing bandages to disguise his identity as he attempted to board a flight to Manila, authorities said. Muklis Yunos, who allegedly helped carry out bombings that killed dozens of people in the Philippines, was arrested on Sunday with a man identified as an Egyptian Muslim cleric, Algabri Ahmoud. Yunos, who is also known as Saifulla Yunos, could prove to be a link between Islamic terrorist groups operating in the Philippines. Authorities said Yunos was the chief of the “special operations” branch in charge of terrorism operations for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), a Muslim separatist group waging a war of independence in the southern Philippines. Yunos also allegedly collaborated with the Jemaah Islamiah terrorist, Fathur Rohman Al Ghozi, in bombings that killed 22 people in Manila in 2000, and in a plot to attack Western embassies that was foiled by Singapore authorities in 2001.
