Malaysian police say they have fatally shot 31 Filipino intruders who sparked a security crisis in Borneo.
It is the highest number of casualties in one day since nearly 200
members of a Philippine Muslim clan took over an entire Malaysian
village last month to lay claim to a sprawling Borneo state they insist
is theirs by royal birthright.
National police chief Ismail Omar says Malaysian security forces tracking the armed clansmen gunned them down in a remote coastal district Thursday. He says no Malaysians were wounded.
