MAUTE TERRORIST FORCES HOSTAGES INTO SUICIDE BOMBERS - NewspaperPH


Malacañang on condemned the reported plans of Maute terrorists to use their hostages as suicide bombers once cornered by government security forces. Three hostages who escaped from the war zone in Marawi City earlier told authorities about the ISIS-inspired group's plan. "We strongly denounce these desperate actions which, apparently, are carefully calculated to create violent reaction from the general populace in order to create tension between ethnic groups which the terrorist groups expect to work in favor of their cause," presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said. Armed Forces of the Philippines spokesperson Brigadier General Restituto Padilla said the military rule is still needed in the south as the soldiers "still have a lot of homework to do." Padilla, who joined Abella at the press briefing, said around 20 to 40 Maute rebels remained holed up in two villages in Marawi City. Padilla said the enemy figures went down but they still have the capacity to inflict harm as they are adequately armed.
