Remains believed to be from the chief of the al-Qaida-linked Abu Sayyaf group, who was a target of a months-long US-backed manhunt, have been found in the southern Philippines, the military said. Khaddafy Janjalani is on a US list of wanted terrorists with a US$5 million (€3.8 million) bounty on his head for a series of beheadings, bombings and mass abductions. He has proven elusive in the dense jungles and mangroves of the southern Philippines that have offered sanctuary to Janjalani and his men, and earlier reports of his demise have proven to be premature. Lt. Col. Ariel Caculitan, the Philippine marines spokesman, said Wednesday that the decomposing remains were found buried in a remote neighborhood on Jolo island. Janjalani was believed to have been killed in a Sept. 4 clash with marines, Caculitan said, but DNA tests would be needed for confirmation.
