Philippine security forces in south on alert due to terror threat
Security forces went on full alert in the southern Philippines on Sunday, police said after military intelligence reported sightings of Islamist militants in the region after the detention of a top al Qaeda-linked leader. Last week, a team of soldiers and police officers arrested Khair Mundos, an expert bomb-maker and the "spiritual leader" of the Abu Sayyaf faction, which rose to notoriety early last decade by kidnapping foreigners. Mundos is wanted by the United States, which put a $500,000 bounty up for his arrest. "Information received with high reliability, revealed a possible terrorist threat to the peace and security Region 11, particularly in Davao City," Chief Superintendent Reuben Sindac, national police spokesman, said in a statement.
