13 Maute terrorists killed in clash with govt troops in Marawi–report


THIRTEEN suspected members of the Maute group were killed in a clash with government troops in Marawi City early Thursday, according to a radio report.

The report said authorities were trying to determine whether one of the fatalities was Dr. Mahmud Ahmad, identified as a Malaysian terrorist and financier of the Islamist State-inspired Maute.

Mahmud escaped the military assault on the terrorists on Monday in Marawi where two of their top leaders — Isnilon Hapilon and Omar Maute — were killed.
