JOLO , Philippines  – Five members of the Maute group were killed in encounters with government forces in Lanao del Sur yesterday.
Capt. Jo-Ann Pentinglay,  Western Mindanao Command spokesperson, said two militants were initially killed in a clash with policemen serving a warrant of arrest in a village in Maguin town at around 3 a.m.
Three other militants died when soldiers of the 14th Division Reconnaissance Co. under Joint Task Force ZamPeLan encountered around 30 militants led by a certain Afgan at around 9 a.m. in Barangay Ragayan.
Petinglay said a Garand, an M16 and three M14 rifles, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, assorted ammunition, two improvised explosive devices and three bandoleers were among those recovered from the militants.
