Warring MILF leaders clash in Southern Philippines 

Minex

COTABATO CITY – Military and police forces have tightened their patrol Wednesday in the restive Maguindanao province in southern Philippines following sporadic clashes between two warring leaders of the former Muslim rebel group Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

The fighting broke out in the village of Ambadaw in Datu Piang town between Commander Fahad, of the MILF’s 105th Base Command, and Commander Adzmie, of the 106th Base Command, and their followers.

The clashes lasted over 2 hours, but it was not immediately known if there were casualties in the battles. No other details were available about the fighting, but both groups had been at odds with each other over control of territories.

Fahad was also implicated in the killing of Commander Mutin, of the separatist group Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) in 2011 during a major battle in Datu Piang.

There was no immediate statement from the MILF which recently signed a peace accord with Manila. The BIFF broke away with the MILF and continues waging a separatist war in an effort to up an independent Islamic state. (Mindanao Examiner)
