2 more policemen fatally shot amid Malaysian siege

Police say two more officers have been fatally shot in a Malaysian state where security jitters have soared because of a deadly government standoff with about 200 Filipino intruders.

 

The shooting Saturday night occurred about 150 kilometers (90 miles) from the Lahad Datu coastal district in eastern Sabah state where 14 other people have been killed after members of a Philippine Muslim royal clan occupied a village last month to claim the territory as their own. (AP)
