COTABATO CITY (Mindanao Examiner / 04 Jul) – Philippine authorities detained a man accused as behind a deadly bomb attack in the restive southern region.

Police and military reports said the man was arrested on Tuesday on a village in Tacurong City, where five people had been killed in a bombing in April.

The man is being investigated for his alleged links with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and Jemaah Islamiya.

The MILF, the country’s largest Muslim rebel group, is talking peace with Manila in an effort to end more than three decades of insurgency in Mindanao.

The MILF previously denied any links to terrorism and has publicly condemned the use violence. (Mark Navales)
