Four slain in MILF encounter
Fighting broke out between two groups of Moro Islamic Liberation Front rebels in Lambayong, Sultan Kudarat, which resulted in four deaths and six others wounded, including two innocent civilians.

Police said the MILF terrorists rebels belonging to 105th MILF Base Command led by Commander Bansil encountered the group of Commander Bausad from the 106th MILF Base Command in Barangay Penguiaman in Maguindanao.

At least four MILF terrorists rebels from Bansil's group were killed while four other rebels were injured during the fierce battle. Two civilians were also hit by stray bullets during the skirmishes.

Senior Inspector Emerson Policarpio, Lambayong police chief, said, “Initial investigation showed the two MILF chieftains figured in a land conflict that triggered the fighting."

He said the battling groups were reinforced by their members armed with high-powered weapons from nearby SK Pendatun town.
