30 Filipino police commandos killed in clash with Muslims

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — A Philippine town mayor says more than 30 police commandos have been killed in a clash with Muslim rebels while hunting a top terror suspect in the south.

It was the biggest single-day combat loss for Philippine forces in many years.

Mayor Tahirudin Benzar Ampatuan of Mamasapano town told The Associated Press by telephone that dozens of police special action force members entered the village of Tukanalipao in Mamasapano town at dawn Sunday to capture a notorious bombing suspect but had a “misencounter” with members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which signed a peace deal with the government last year.

    more proof that peace deals with Muslims are nothing more than efforts in futility….

      Islam commands them to lie anyways to give them a tactical advantage. For this reason a muslim can never be trusted.

    They are totally angry at us because of Israel and the Iraq war. If only there was no Israel and no Bush there would be peace on earth with these people.

      The deal is if we shut up about their woman and child bashing and let them have their way with the Jew they promise us peace.
