ZAMBOANGA CITY: Four government soldiers were wounded in fresh clashes with Abu Sayyaf militants in Sulu where security forces are pursuing the al-Qaeda-linked group holding several foreigners and Filipinos. Fighting broke out Friday in Patikul, a day after the military announced the capture of an Abu Sayyaf base in the town’s hinterlands. The wounded soldiers were airlifted to Zamboanga City as troops continued to pursue the militants in Patikul, a known stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf in the province. The military did not release the names of the soldiers.
