Reports form the southern philippines are that a ASG (Abu Sayyaf Group) leader was killed in shootout with members of the Military and Police in Isabela town on Basilan Island.

For the most part isabella has been cleared of large scale activity of the ASG – so Government reports say – but since this area has been long a historic ‘base’ for the groups founders, members, and supporters. It is not unheard of that on occasion they do drift back to attempt to recruit new members or touch base with families.

There are often a more reports of this kind of activities taking place on Jolo island in the Sulu Province area and in the hinterland areas of Maguindanao.

Overall the group has merged say Military reports in form and substance with other regional groups like Jemaah Islamiah and has also splintered into different factions – one for example Abu Sofia– is more of a mainalnd mindanao group and was a merger of sorts between members of the Pentagon KFR (kidnap for ransom) gang and other small disgruntled factions of armed groups who did not want to take part in peace talks with government for whatever reason.
