Col. Dickson Hermoso, speaking for the Army’s Sixth Infantry “Kampilan” Division, said members of the outlawed Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters opened fire at a roadside detachment of Army’s Second Mechanized Battalion in Barangay Elian in Datu Saudi before fleeing. A child and a farmer were seriously wounded in the incident. The child later expired at the Cotabato Regional and Medical Center while the farmer remained in critical condition.
