MUAR - Aminah Abdul Aziz, 68, has not seen her second child for more than a decade and she seems resigned to the fact that she had lost him to the world of militancy forever.

When told that latest intelligence reports suggested that her son is still alive and a principal asset to the Philippine-based Abu Sayyaf group, all Aminah could muster was "Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah)", the New Straits Times (NST) reported.

"But then, if he is dead, I will say a prayer for him," she told the newspaper.
