Philippine security forces on Thursday killed three terror suspects allegedly involved in the attack of the southern Philippine city of Marawi in May last year. Brigadier General William Alunday of the Armed Forces of the Philippines said the three were killed in a joint military and police operations in Lanao del Norte province. Alunday identified one of the three slain suspects as Omar Daiser. He did not identify the two others.
