COTABATO CITY – The Philippine military has claimed killing on Saturday an alleged bomber of a pro-ISIS group tagged as behind two deadly attacks recently in the southern town of Isulan.

The 6th Infantry Division said troops raided a hideout of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighter before dawn in the restive Maguindanao province and fatally shot Norodin Taib during a firefight. It said five other militants managed to escape the raid in Kuloy village in Shariff Aguak town.

“The suspects are involved in the bombings in Isulan in Sultan Kudarat province on August 28 and September 2, 2018,” an army statement said, adding, soldiers also recovered improvised grenades and an explosive device and mobile phones in the hideout.
