Troops kill 10 rebels in southern Philippines

27 May 2009

MANILA, May 27 (Reuters) - Philippine troops killed 10 rogue Muslim rebels in a massive sea-air-land assault on a remote island in the south on Wednesday, a navy admiral said.

The military launched the offensive, backed by navy boats and helicopter gunships, a day after renegade Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) guerrillas freed three teachers they held for over four months on Basilan island, said Rear Admiral Alexander Pama, navy commander in the south.

"We lost one lieutenant in the assault operations, but we got 10 of them," Pama told Reuters.
