5 MILF men killed while running after BIFF

At least five members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front were killed after getting caught in a land mine blast while pursuing the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters in Maguindanao last weekend.

The slain MILF guerillas were about to surround members of the BIFF in Barangay Andavit in Datu Saudi town on Sunday when one of them stepped on a trip wire.

Lt. Col. Gerry Besana of the Army’s 6th Civil Military Operations Battalion said the fatalities were followers of Commander Asrap.

Asrap is one of the MILF commanders under Task Force Ittihad. He is helping the police and the military neutralize BIFF bandits.

Last week, four BIFF members were killed in an encounter with the MILF in Barangay Pusaw, Sharif Saidona town. Two MILF members were wounded.

The BIFF is a breakaway faction of the MILF.
