Lineses said the group responsible in “isolated” looting incidents is composed of at least 20 people. He said the same group could have been responsible in the looting of the Commission on Election’s office in Shariff Aguak, the province’s capital town.

He added that security forces were able to arrest one looter, who is a member of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. He said the separatist group has confirmed that the looter is their member.
