Police probe alleged arms landing in Sulu

GMANews 01/11/2010

ZAMBOANGA CITY – Police are investigating reports of landing of hundreds of illegal weapons in the southern province of Sulu, where government security forces are battling Abu Sayyaf militants and other armed groups in the region.

“We are investigating reports that 300 illegal weapons landed in the town of Luuk,” said Senior Superintendent Bienvenido Latag, the regional police chief.

Sulu Governor Sakur Tan, citing intelligence reports, last week said the weapons were smuggled into Luuk by a still unidentified armed group last month after President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo declared martial law in Maguindanao province.

Security forces in Maguindanao recovered huge caches of light infantry and heavy artillery weapons allegedly owned by the powerful Ampatuan clan following the martial law declaration.

It was unknown whether the weapons came from Maguindanao or who owns the arms cache. The implementation of martial law on most parts of Maguindanao lasted from December 4 to 12.
