WHITE-ROBED MEN SEIZE 4 IN JOLO TOWN

0

Armed men wearing white robes on Monday seized three students of a private school and their family driver in the southern Filipino town of Jolo, police said. Police said the victims—two children and a teenager—were in a car driven by Saddam Amlih, 24, on their way to Notre Dame School when a jeep used by the gunmen blocked their path on General Arolas Street in the village of Alat. “The four victims were forcibly taken by seven armed in Tabligh attire who fled towards Patikul town,” police chief Abraham Orbita told The Manila Times. “Police forces responded as soon as we received the information, but did not catch up with the abductors. We are investigating the incident.” Tabligh refers to a preacher and the robe they use is called thawb or thobe or kandura.
