MANILA, Philippines – Malaysian security forces claimed they had recovered the remains of 13 fighters of the Royal Sulu Army in Sabah’s Tanduo village in Lahad Datu town during “sweeping and mopping operations” after assaults were launched against Filipinos in Sabah, according to a report by Bernama, the official portal of Malaysia’s national news agency.

Quoting information from Malaysia Defense Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Bernama said among the bodies recovered belonged to a “terrorist” who was shot dead in an exchange of fire with Malaysian security forces at 6:45 a.m., Wednesday.

It said that according to Ahmad Zahid, nine of the bodies were found in an open grave covered with pieces of planks.

The photos of the remains of the Filipinos were shown to the media, including pictures of the “terrorists’ bodies in a grave,” Bernama said.

The report said other photos distributed to media were that of a “forensic personnel who was attacked by the intruders while inspecting a grave in the village and firearms seized by the security forces.”

Bernama said Ahmad Zahid criticized the attitude of social media for belittling Malaysia’s action against the Filipinos as drama. 

“These photographs show that our security forces have the efficiency to carry out the operation. This is not a drama,” Bernama quoted Ahmad Zahid as saying.
