Gunmen seize school workers

World | Jul 17, 2017
Suspected Abu Sayyaf gunmen abducted four workers from a school in Patikul, Sulu province, as Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte visited troops waging an offensive against the militants.

About 20 militants barged into a school compound and seized six painters and carpenters.

Meanwhile, 14 inmates, including suspected Abu Sayyaf fighters and drug dealers, escaped yesterday from a jail in Sulu's main town of Jolo. Three were gunned down by police and another was captured.
