Two suspected local terrorists were killed while four soldiers were wounded in a 10-minute clash in Lanao del Sur on Wednesday. Western Mindanao commander Lt. Gen. Alfredo Rosario Jr. said on Thursday that troops of the 1st Marine Brigade were conducting military operations in Balabagan town when they encountered Daulah Islamiyah-Maute Group member Polo Alim, wanted for murder, who was with several armed men. The soldiers figured in a 10-minute firefight with the bandits which resulted in the death of two suspected terrorists and the injury of four Marines. —JEANNETTE I. ANDRADE
