    Hunt vs ASG bandits in Phl intensified

     
    THE Philippine military on Saturday intensified its maritime patrols to check on suspicious watercraft that could lead its men to the location where the two hostages abducted by Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) bandits are being kept.
    Rear Admiral Jesus C. Millan, the Naval Forces Western Mindanao chief, said they are still searching for the Chinese tourist and Filipino hotel staff snatched by suspected ASG bandits in a Malaysian dive resort early this week.
    Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Rustico Guerrero, Western Mindanao Command chief, said they are yet to establish the location of the hostages and the group behind the abduction.
    "So we cannot categorically state that a particular group is holding the two victims in a specified place," Guerrero said.
    Meanwhile, Rear Admiral Jesus C. Millan, the Naval Forces Western Mindanao chief, on the other hand, said they have intensified maritime patrols in the area to check on suspicious watercraft.
    The ASG bandits are engaged in kidnap-for-ransom activities in war-torn Southern Philippines.
