COTABATO CITY, Philippines – Two suspects tagged in the killing of a police official and a civilian informant in a drug sting in Indanan, Sulu were slain in an encounter with law enforcers in Parang town on Thursday.

Ballong Kiyara, 29, and Aljinal Jinnull, 27, were riding a motorcycle when they fired at police officers who tried to pull them over in Barangay Saldang, according to Brig. Gen. Marni Marcos of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

Lt. Sali Aspi Salim of the Sulu police and the civilian informant, who was not identified, were shot by the cohorts of a drug suspect who resisted arrest after selling shabu to undercover agents on Sunday.
