Army soldiers foiled an alleged attempt by Abu Sayyaf bandits to stage bomb attacks following the recovery of an improvised explosive device (IED) along a road leading to a tourist site in Indanan, Sulu on Saturday.
Troopers of the Army’s 100th Infantry Battalion were conducting security patrol when they discovered the IED hidden under the shrubs leading to Mt. Tumatangis, according to Maj. Gen. Ignatius Patrimonio, chief of the Army’s 11th Division.
The mountain, formerly occupied by the bandits and other lawless elements, has been turned into one of the most frequented sites by local tourists.
