JI Suspect Nabbed in Shariff Kabunsuan

Cotabato City, Philippines. -- Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Jesus Verzosa called for “heightened vigilance” following the arrest of a suspected member of the Jemaah Islamiyah terror network on Tuesday.

In a statement Wednesday, Verzosa said security forces in Mindanao should stay alert against “other similar attempts to disturb the peace in Mindanao.”

Police arrested Muhammad Alpariz, a Bangladeshi, at around 3 p.m. Tuesday in Shariff Kabunsuan province.

The arrest stemmed from a search warrant issued by Judge Isaac Robillo of Davao City Regional Trial Court (RTC) branch 13.

Authorities said they recovered are several improvised explosive devices and bomb-making paraphernalia from the suspect, who is still undergoing interrogation.
