FBI confirms death of terrorist Marwan

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The FBI has finally confirmed the death of bomb terrorist Zulkifli Abdir aka “Marwan”, more than two months after he became the target of a Mamasapano mission that left 44 Philippine Special Action Forces members dead.

The FBI’s forensic review, which included analyzing a sample from Marwan’s body and comparing it to his brother’s, Rahmat Abdir, led to the confirmation.

“After a thorough review of forensic data and information obtained from our Philippine law enforcement partners, the FBI has assessed that terrorism subject, Zulkifli Abdhir, also known as “Marwan,” is deceased and has been removed from the FBI’s list of Most Wanted Terrorists. The FBI’s case against Abdhir is one of many investigations the FBI has conducted in cooperation with our Philippine counterparts. Once again, the men and women of the FBI express sincere condolences to the brave officers of the Special Action Force who lost their lives while attempting to apprehend this dangerous fugitive. The FBI’s partnership with the Philippine National Police is among the strongest in the world, and we will continue to work in close cooperation with them to identify, disrupt, and dismantle terrorist networks,” said David Bowdich, assistant director in charge of the FBI Los Angeles field office.

The FBI had initially offered $5 million for the arrest of Marwan, a Malaysian member of Jemaah Islamiah, a militant group with links to Al Qaeda.

    200Million Pesos reward money to be given personally by the US Embassy to the informer, kung buhay pa, puwedeng bagong informer na, na bata nang Pulis ang lalabas na tatanggap nang pera.Asked Mankau, noong panahon nila,sa halagang 1 million Pesos, sina-salvage nila ang informer, at ang bata nila ang tumatangap nang pera. Eto isa sa rason kaya hindi nagcoordinate si Purisima sa Army at Marines, dahil sa reward money..gusto nilang dalawa solo-hin ang gracia.
