MANILA---At least 14 Philippine marines and
Abu Sayyaf militants were killed in a clash in a
new US-backed offensive aimed at rescuing six
foreign and Filipino hostages and stopping the
al-Qaida-linked gunmen from staging more kid-
nappings in the country s south, a military com-
mander said yesterday.

were killed in the gunbattle, which raged for an
hour Saturday in a sparsely populated village near
coastal Patikul town in Sulu province. Six marines
and about ten gunmen were wounded, marine
Col Jose Cenabre said.
Government troops backed by assault helicopters
were hunting down the fleeing militants, who
were believed to be led by Jul-Aswan Sawadjaan,
an Abu Sayyaf commander accused in the kid-
nappings of a Jordanian journalist and two Euro-
pean bird watchers who are still being held by
One of Sawadjaan s sons and a minor Abu
Sayyaf commander are believed to have been killed
in the firefight, said Cenabre, who heads security
forces in Sulu. He said the marines initially had
difficulty returning fire because the dozens of
militants took cover near a row of houses.
The flag-draped caskets of the slain marines
were flown to Manila yesterday and given military
honours at an air force base amid a downpour,
the latest military casualties in a battle against
Muslim extremists that has dragged on for about
two decades. Marine commandant Brig Gen
Romeo Tanalgo said the battle would continue
despite the setback.
The firefight was part of a new military offensive
that started last week and is aimed at rescuing
the three foreign captives, who were abducted
last year, along with three Filipinos kidnapped
separately by the militants in recent weeks, he
Among the Filipino captives was a marine s
wife who worked in a Sulu provincial hospital
and was kidnapped two weeks ago.
Although a large number of marines and police-
men are involved in the offensive, only small units
have been deployed to hunt down the Abu Sayyaf
in two jungle encampments in Sulu, Cenabre said
without providing details of the operation. US
forces were providing intelligence but were not
involved in actual combat, he said.
While Abu Sayyaf abductions still occur, they
are far fewer today than the massive kidnappings
that terrorised Sulu and outlying provinces in the
early 2000s, when the group had many com-
manders and strong ties with terrorist organisa-
tions, including Indonesian-based Jemaah
US-backed military offensives have crippled
the Abu Sayyaf in recent years, but it remains a
key security threat. Washington lists the group,
which still has about 300 armed fighters, as a
terrorist organisation. (AP)
