Tests Confirm Abu Sayyaf Leader's Death

Some pleasant news to start the day.
DNA test results confirmed that the leader of the al-Qaida-linked group Abu Sayyaf was killed during a clash with Philippine troops in September, officials said Saturday.

Word of Khadaffy Janjalani's death came just days after U.S.-backed Philippine troops killed his possible successor, senior Abu Sayyaf commander Abu Sulaiman, who was wanted in the beheading of a California tourist and the kidnapping of two American missionaries.

The deaths of Janjalani and Sulaiman mark a major victory in the campaign to wipe out Islamic militants in the south of the archipelago after years of bombings and kidnappings.

Plenty more of these maggots. Just keep wiping them out.
