Slain terrorist could be a foreigner

Maj. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana

The military believes that one of the terrorists killed in its operations in Maguindanao was a foreigner.

Maj. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, commander of the Philippine Army’s 6th Infantry Division, said the body recovered by authorities could be that of Abdul Rahman.

He said Rahman could have been a bomber.

Last week, Sobejana sent to media a photo of the cadaver that was recovered following the air and ground operations in Maguindanao to track down the terrorists’ hideout.

“We will check with our database when did he manage to slip into the country and who was he with,” he told reporters.

Sobejana said Rahman could have been training local terrorists on bomb-making.

The Army is hunting down five foreign terrorists accompanying Abu Toraype’s faction of terrorists in Maguindanao.

These are composed of a Singaporean, whom Sobejana identified as Muawiyah; two more Arab-looking men; and an Indonesian.

Sobejana said it is possible that Muawiyah may have been among those killed by the military last week. Dempsey Reyes
