The chairperson of the Human Rights Commission of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Laisa Alamia, says so far 47 Filipino families have voluntarily fled Sabah to nearby Tawi-Tawi since the outbreak of violence in Lahad Datu between Malaysian armed forces and followers of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III.

Alamia expects the number of Filipinos feeling Sabah to rise in the coming days. She is calling for both the Malaysian and Philippine governments to tone down their approach in resolving the conflict as it has affected Tawi-Tawi where prices of commodities have gone up by 50 to 100 per cent since the outbreak of violence started in Sabah.
