Mystery militant on the radar


KOTA KINABALU: A Malaysian going by the nom de guerre Abu Hizab is being hunted by Philippine security forces combing Marawi City, which has been liberated from Islamic State (IS) militants.

Intelligence sources said Abu Hizab (pic), whose real identity is yet to be established, is believed to be part of the group of slain former Universiti Malaya lecturer-turned-terrorist Dr Mahmud Ahmad in the southern Philippines.
