Four members of the Abu Sayyaf were killed in an encounter with the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) in Sulu on Tuesday, the military said.

The four slain Abu Sayyaf members included Jennor Lahab alias Jim Dragon, a follower of Misaya and said to be involved in the kidnapping of 10 Indonesians last March and in an encounter with the group of former Kalinggalang Caluang Mayor Jerry Misuari in April last year.

An unidentified rebel believed to be his Lahab’s son was also killed. Two other bodies were recovered by the MNLF.
