Two farmers were killed in the south by armed men believed to belong to the MILF. But it was also possible that the violence was the result of a personal dispute. In the southern Philippines, violence by the MILF often gets mixed up with family feuds, land disputes and criminal activity. Many of the different MILF groups are controlled by clan leaders or local big shots. Meanwhile, the navy killed three MILF off the coast when ten MILF members were caught moving by sea and refused to stop.
