Philippine police kill suspected Malaysian terrorist planning bomb attack in southern city


Philippine police have killed a suspected Malaysian terrorist who allegedly was planning a bomb attack in Davao City, one of the largest cities in the country's south.

Davao city police chief Ronald de la Rosa says the suspected terrorist, identified as Mod Noor Fikrie Bin Abud Kahar, was fatally shot by police late Friday following a scuffle inside a hotel where he and his Filipino wife had checked in.

De la Rosa says that as the couple was checking out, officers tried to seize the man, but that he broke free and threatened to detonate a bomb that was inside a bag his wife was carrying.

He says the man grabbed the bag from his wife but was then shot.

The bomb, which was subsequently defused, was fashioned from a mortar shell.

At least 37 hurts in a previous grenade attack happened last September 2, 2012 in Davao City  which was apparently meant to strike an army camp.

Davao City is the third of the mainly Catholic Philippines deadly insurgencies have raged for decades. (http://is.gd/tgoJe6)
