Muslim guerrillas on Wednesday protested their chieftain's inclusion in a criminal complaint filed in connection with recent bomb attacks in the southern Philippines, warning it could endanger already stalled peace talks. Police filed a murder complaint Tuesday against Moro Islamic Liberation Front chairman Al Haj Murad and several suspected MILF commanders for allegedly plotting an Oct. 10 bomb attack that killed six people and wounded 29 in southern North Cotabato province, government prosecutor Al Calica said. Three Indonesian militants, including top terror suspects Dulmatin and Umar Patek, and a Pakistani national, also were included in the complaint, he said. Rebel spokesman Eid Kabalu denied Murad was involved in the attacks and warned of a "total breakdown" in the Malaysian-brokered peace talks if the government pursued criminal charges against the rebel leader.
