Slain MNLF fighter found in Barangay Rio Hondo clearing operations


The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Saturday announced that ground units conducting clearing operations have found a body of another Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) fighter in Barangay Rio Hondo, Zamboanga City Friday.

AFP deputy public affairs office chief Major Angelo Guzman, in his Twitter account, said that government forces also recovered an M-14 rifle.

He did not immediately identify the slain MNLF fighter.


Military forces and followers of MNLF founding chairman Nur Misuari had engaged in at least 20 days of fighting last September.

Misuari’s followers tried to occupy parts of the city and took civilians as hostages, but government forces retook the MNLF-controlled areas. PNA
