Swede, 6 others charged with frustrated murder for Sultan Kudarat bombing

ISULAN, Sultan Kudarat—A Swede believed to be an Islamic State follower and six others had been charged on Thursday, Oct. 3, with involvement in the Sept. 7 roadside bombing near this town’s market that wounded at least eight people.

Police filed the multiple frustrated murder case against the seven suspects at the provincial prosecutor’s office, according to Brig. Gen. Alfred Corpus, police regional director.


Two of the seven are still at large and being hunted, Corpus said.

Four had been identified as Normia Antao Camsa, Norshiya Joven Camsa, Abedin Camsa alias “Beds,” and the Swedish national, Hassan Akgun. They were arrested last Sept. 23 at the town of Bagumbayan, Sultan Kudarat during a raid on their hideout.


Also on Sept. 23, another suspect, Kamlon Tongab Camsa, was arrested at a checkpoint in General Santos City carrying two grenades in his bag. Camsa was said to be an official of Moro National Liberation Front.

Those at large had been identified as Rashid Joven Camsa and Maira Tungap Alimao.

Police had linked the Sept. 7 bombing to IS fanatics. A homemade bomb left the night before exploded in the middle of parked motorcycles in front of the Isulan market./TSB
