Hanya 3 Kematian Di Lahad Datu, 10 Serah Diri, Ramai Lari Keluar Ikut Laut

Sebelum ini pihak Sultan Kiram III mendakwa 10 orangnya maut dalam pertempuran dengan pihak keselamatan Malaysia. Walaubagaimanapun laporan dari Filipina menyebut maklumat yang diterima oleh kerajaan Filipina, hanya 3 orang disahkan maut.

Angka kecederaan tidak diketahui dan dikhuatiri agak tinggi apabila pihak Filipina memohon izin agar dibenarkan pihaknya memberi bantuan perubatan kepada rakyatnya yang cedera. Apa kejadahnya ni?

Menurut mereka juga, keadaan kini kembali tenang semula selepas sebahagian besar penceroboh lari ke laut. Laporan lain juga menyebut saki baki penceroboh terus diburu.

Kerajaan diminta menambah bilangan anggota tentera dan polis di timur Sabah bagi menangani kemungkinan susulan dari kejadian ini. Tahniah kepada pihak keselamatan negara ini dan takziah kepada keluarga Insp. Zulkifli dan Sjn. Sabaruddin.

MANILA, Philippines – The standoff in Sabah between the "royal army" of the Sultanate of Sulu and Malaysian authorities is over, Malaysian Ambassador Mohammad Zamri bin Mohammad Kassim told Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario in a meeting Friday.

Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Spokesman Raul Hernandez told reporters in a press conference that ambassador Kassim met with Del Rosario around 2 p.m. to inform them that the standoff has ended.

Kassim informed Del Rosario that 10 members of the "royal army" surrendered after Malaysian authorities "conducted an assault at Lahad Datu at 10 this morning," Hernandez said.

Lahad Datu is the village where hundreds of followers of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, led by his brother Agbimuddin Kiram, had encamped since February 11 despite repeated demands from the Malaysian government to leave.

"The group of Kiram at Lahad Datu escaped and ran towards the sea, 10 men surrendered," he added.
Malaysian authorities are pursuing the group, Hernandez said.

The owner of the house where Agbimuddin Kiram had stayed was killed according to Ambassador Kassim.

At least two were killed and one wounded from the side of the Malaysian police, whose vehicle was fired upon by the Kiram group, Hernandez said.
Del Rosario asked from the Malaysian Ambassador for "a full briefing of the operations that were conducted by Malaysian forces," he added.

Del Rosario also asked that full access be given to the Kiram group so that medical treatment could be provided to the wounded as well as consular assistance.

Permission is also being sought by the government to allow a Philippine Navy Ship, the BRP Tagbanua, to dock so that it could ferry the remaining members of the group back to their homes and families.

A spokesman of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III claimed that 10 of their men were killed and four others were wounded in the firefight.
The "royal army" of the Sultanate of Sulu was in Sabah allegedly to reclaim their territory.

10 Penceroboh Lahad Datu, 2 Polis Maut Dalam Pertempuran

Laporan dari portal online Filipina menyebut 10 penceroboh maut manakala 4 lagi cedera dalam pertempuran antara pihak keselamatan Malaysia dengan puak penceroboh. Menurut laporan Bernama pula, 2 polis komando dilaporkan terbunuh dalam serangan mortar oleh puak penceroboh.

Ketegangan berlaku setelah tempoh memujuk untuk menyerah diri berakhir dan berbagai tawaran supaya mereka keluar dari kawasan kedaulatan Malaysia dibuat termasuk dengan kerjasama Filipina menghantar kapal angkatan lautnya untuk membawa mereka pulang ke Filipina.

Sebelum ini, pihak Reuters melaporkan bahawa pihak Filipina mendakwa bahawa para penceroboh yang mengakui Tentera Diraja Sultan Sulu bagi Sultan Kiram III yang kini menetap di Manila telah bertanggungjawab membawa masuk segerombolan dipercayai tokoh-tokoh penduduk Kepulauan Sulu di Filipina atas jemputan pihak pembangkang yang tidak disebutkan siapa, bagi membincangkan isu pemberian tanah kepada mereka di bumi Sabah.

Kerajaan Malaysia perlu mendesak Kerajaan Filipina menahan Sultan Kiram III dan disabitkan dengan undang-undang yang terpakai di sana dalam hal ini.

Peperangan telah dimulakan dan dipercayai inilah pertempuran paling sengit pernah berlaku di negara ini selepas Parti Komunis Malaya meletakkan senjata pada 2 Disember 1989.

MANILA, Philippines—At least 10 people died while four others were injured when a firefight broke out between the "royal army" of Sulu and Malaysian forces in Lahad Datu village in Sabah, the daughter of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III said Friday.

Among those wounded is a woman, Princess Jaycel Kiram said in press conference in Manila.

She said the information was relayed to the royal family by Rajah Muda, brother of the sultan and leader of the group that sailed from Mindanao to Lahad Datu on February 12 to stake a territorial claim on Sabah.

The exchange of gunfire began at around 6 a.m. Friday when the Malaysian forces inched closer to the place where the group, which includes about 30 gunmen according to Filipino authorities,  has been holed up, Abraham Idjirani, spokesman for the Sultan of Sulu, said at the press conference.
The group has no intention to leave the area despite the firefight, the sultan stressed.

The Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed that shots were fired but denied reports there were casualties.

Foreign Affairs spokesman Assistant Secretary Raul Hernandez told ABS-CBN network that the gunfire had stopped and there were no casualties.
"What he (Philippine ambassador to Malaysia) relayed to Secretary del Rosario was that this incident happened earlier, and thank God there were no casualties," Hernandez said.

Scores of followers of Sultan Kiram have been facing off with Malaysian security forces in Lahad Datu village for more than two weeks. With Radyo Inquirer and Agence France-Presse
