Sabah standoff: No updates on remaining militants or brother of 'Sultan of Sulu'
LAHAD DATU: None of the remnant Sulu armed groups holed up in the homes of fishing villagers around Tanjung Labian have surrendered while a dead-or-alive poser hangs over their leader Raja Muda Azzimudie Kiram, the Star reported on Saturday.
Giving an update on the ongoing Ops Daulat around Kampong Tanjung Batu and Kampong Tanjung Labian as well as Tanduo village in Sabah, Armed Forces chief Jeneral Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin said yesterday that he had not received any news regarding the possible surrender of the remaining Sulu gunmen.
"We will continue with the operations as we believe the remaining gunmen are still located in a few places," he said as villagers reported hearing several explosions and gunfire.
Fighter jets also did an aerial survey of the operations area covering 10 sq km but there were no reports of bombings.
