Commandos trap Muslim killers

Ipil, Philippines - Filipino commandos have cornered some of the Muslim gunmen who killed at least 52 people. Hundreds of terrified civilians were reported fleeing fierce fighting in rugged jungle terrain as the Abu Sayyaf group looted farms and seized civilians for "human shields" as they fled Ipil, 480 miles south of Manila. The government Scout Rangers laid siege to a school compound in a mining village west of Ipil, where about 40 Abu Sayyaf fighters were holed up with hostages. AP
