14 Philippines troops killed in clash with rebels
At least 10 found beheaded after battle with Muslim insurgents
Philippine troops recovered the bodies of 14 marines, some of them beheaded, after clashing with Muslim insurgents while searching for a kidnapped Italian priest, a marine spokesman said Wednesday.
Nine others were wounded in some of the bloodiest fighting this year. The clash erupted Tuesday in Tipo Tipo town on southern Basilan island, said Lt. Col. Ariel Caculitan.
At least 10 bodies were beheaded, Caculitan said, including those of six marines earlier reported missing.
If the US would just get out of Iraq, I’m sure this would settle down.
