MANILA, Philippines — Two members of the Maute group surrendered to the military in Piagapo, Lanao del Sur over the weekend.

Farhan Salik, 20, and Alimoden Maunada, 38, turned over their caliber .30 M1 Garand rifles, Lt. Col. Rafman Altre, 82nd Infantry Battalion (IB) commander, said.

Altre said Moro Islamic Liberation Front commander Salic Dimasangkay and Usman Amboloto, chairman of Barangay Dado in Balindong, intervened for the surrender of the militants.
