Troops arrest 2 Abu Sayyaf
2003-10-04
GOVERNMENT opera­tives arrested two Abu Sayyaf terrorists, one of them listed on the mili­tary's order of battle, in two separate incidents in Sulu province, accor­ding to reports reaching Camp Aguinaldo. Lt. Col. Daniel Lucero, public information chief of the Armed Forces, identified the arrested rebels as Rudymar Bonsing and Salip Abdula, notorious for their involvement in the Sipadan siege in April 2000. Abdula, who has a P150,000 reward on his head, was captured Friday by combined forces of the Army and the Marines in Kajaitan village, Indanan, Sulu. Lucero said Abdula is included in the order of battle of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the Department of National Defense. His arrest was made possible through intensive intelligence efforts by the military. On Monday elements from the Marine Battalion Landing Team 9 arrested Bonsing, who also uses the name Eudymal Luin, in Taglibi village in Patikul, Sulu. Initial investigation disclosed that Bonsing was a member of the Abu Sayyaf unit under Commander Radulan Sahiron, who has a P5-million bounty for his arrest.
