Philippine marines have killed at least six Muslim extremists and captured one of their jungle lairs in fighting in the country's south.


Marine brigade commander Col. Jose Cenabre said Monday that the marines, backed by village militias, launched an assault over the weekend after several Abu Sayyaf militants were monitored in a jungle camp near Talipao town on Jolo island. Three militants were killed in a gunbattle and three more died later in military shelling. (AP)
