This is not the first time the Governor or members of his family were the target of attacks.
In December of 2002, a bomb killed the governor’s son, Saudi, mayor of Datu Piang town.

A year earlier, Ampatuan survived an assassination attempt when assailants opened fire on his convoy.

That same year, he survived another ambush. Ampatuan’s son, Zaldy, is the governor of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao.
