COTABATO CITY – Government security forces clashed with a group of militiamen identified with the Ampatuan clan in a 15-minute skirmish allegedly started by the militiamen, the military said Saturday.

Soldiers of the 46th Infantry Division were patrolling Barangay (village) Kuloy in Shariff Aguak, Maguindanao, on Friday when they were fired upon around 2 p.m., said Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Ponce, spokesman of the military’s 6th Infantry Division.

He said the soldiers, backed by armored personnel carriers, retaliated and a 15-minute firefight ensued.
