MANILA -- Remains thought to be of the chief of the al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf group, who was the target of a monthslong U.S.-backed manhunt, have been found in the southern Philippines, the military said yesterday.
Khaddafy Janjalani is on a U.S. list of wanted terrorists with a $5 million bounty on his head for a series of beheadings, bombings and mass abductions. He remained elusive in the dense jungles of the southern Philippines, and earlier reports of his demise proved to be premature.
