Al-Qaida-linked insurgents fleeing Philippine troops took shelter in the camp of a Muslim separatist group that has a peace deal with the government, sparking a battle that wounded at least 13 soldiers, officials said Monday. Members of the brutal Abu Sayyaf group, target of a months-long US-backed offensive on Jolo island, tried to evade troops by entering the camp of the Moro National Liberation Front on Sunday, Marine Brig.
