ZAMBOANGA CITY: Soldiers seized a boat loaded with illegally cut lumber in Basilan province, an army spokesman said. Capt. Jefferson Mamauag, of the 1st Infantry Division, said members of the Special Forces seized the 50-foot boat transporting some 2,500 board feet of Yakal or Shora astylosa. The boat was bound for Zamboanga City when intercepted by soldiers. Mamauag said the group of Lt. Col. Eliglen Villaflor was patrolling the shorelines when it spotted the boat. Villaflor, in his report, said villagers have earlier tipped them off about the transport of the lumber, which came from the town of Sumisip.
