Abu Sayyaf eyed in 3rd Sulu bridge bombing


Suspected members of the al-Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf bombed a bridge in Patikul town in Sulu province late Thursday night but no one was reported injured in the blast, a military spokesman said Friday.

In a text message, Armed Forces Western Mindanao Command (Wesmincom) spokesperson Major Ramon David Hontiveros said the suspects bombed the Tangan-Tangan Bridge in Brgy. Taung around 11 p.m., causing partial damage to half of the bridge.

But the bridge remains passable to any vehicle, Hontiveros said.

He said combat units have been deployed to pursue the bombers, who he said are probably Abu Sayyaf bandits. More
