Military says: Search operations for Misuari still ongoing

From the Philippine News Agency (Feb 17): Military says: Search operations for Misuari still ongoing

Col. Jose Johriel Cenabre, commander of the 2nd Marine Brigade based in Jolo, Sulu, said on Monday the search operations for fugitive Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) leader Nur Misuari are still ongoing.

Misuari is wanted for instigating the Zamboanga City siege last September which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people and destruction of billions of pesos worth of private and public properties.

"(We have) some information on Misuari's (location) but we are continuously validating (to determine) his exact location," Cenabre said.

He likened Misuari to a rat always in hiding in the wake of reports that the MNLF founding chairman had been spotted in Sulu.

He said that the continuing search operations for Misuari are part of the military's various peace and security missions.
