Our Men Killed in Lahad Datu ...
...with more casualties among the Sulu gunmen.
PM Najib has confirmed that two Malaysian commandoes were killed and another three injured in an exchange of gunfire which Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein had earlier affirmed that our forces DID not start.
Also, it is confirmed that 12 Sulu gunmen who claimed to be of the Royal Sulu Army were killed.
The NST reports that as at 4.30pm, several Malaysian security forces have been taken to the Lahad Datu Hospital.
Curfew has been declared in Lahad Datu after gunfire broke out between our security forces and the gunmen who claim to be kin/kith/supporters/army of a man from Sulu who wants to be known as Sultan of Sulu Jamalul Kiram III.
Prayers for our fallen forces and for those injured.
May peace be quickly restored.
