Philippine troops clash with Muslim rebels; 23 killed, 73 hurt

April 10, 2016

MANILA (Reuters) – Philippine soldiers battled a group of about 120 Muslim rebels linked to Islamic State in a ten-hour assault on a southern island that killed 23 people, an army spokesman said on Sunday.

Major Filemon Tan said the military attacked a stronghold of Abu Sayyaf rebels on the island of Basilan led by Isnilon Hapilon, an insurgent for whom the U.S. State Department has offered a bounty of up to $5 million.

“I can confirm 18 soldiers were killed and 53 were wounded,” Tan said, adding that five militants, including a Moroccan, Mohammad Khattab, and Ubaida, a son of Hapilon, were killed in Saturday’s incident, which wounded 20 rebels.
