Sayyaf militant in Sabah kidnappings killed


ZAMBOANGA CITY: An Abu Sayyaf bandit arrested by government soldiers was fatally shot after he grabbed the firearm of one of his guards in Tawi-Tawi. Officials said Ustab Anji was killed on Monday in the village of Magsagaw in Panglima Sugala town while troops were on their way to police headquarters to hand over the terrorist. Anji was accused in the kidnappings this year of Indonesian and Malaysian sailors in Sabah, Malaysia. He was also tagged as among those who kidnapped 21 mostly European holiday makers in Sabah in 2000 and had a P350,000 bounty on his head. Officials said members of the Marine Battalion Landing Team-9 and the local police arrested Anji and seized from him a .45-caliber pistol and a hand grenade.
