MANILA, Philippines -- A Marine was killed in a clash with the Abu Sayyaf in Patikul, Sulu Tuesday afternoon.

Captain Ryan Lacuesta, 2nd Marine Brigade civil-military operations officer, said the clash broke out around 1:40 p.m. when troops of 26 Marine Company pursuing gunmen who kidnapped Sulu provincial treasurer Jesus Cabelin Monday ran into some 30 Abu Sayyaf fighters led by sub-commanders Asman and Hatib Sawajaan.

The gunmen, who reportedly incurred undetermined casualties, retreated after the hour-long firefight.
