Two soldiers were killed and two others wounded in an ambush staged by armed men believed to be Abu Sayyaf militants on Sunday in Sulu.

GMA News quoted a  provincial office report as saying that four intelligence operatives of the army’s 32nd Infantry Batallion  stationed in Barangay Bun-Bun in Patikul town were heading for Jolo town on two motorcycles when gunmen opened fire on them with assault rifles.

Police identified the fatalities as Private First Class Ernie Pumicpic and Private First Class Benhar Ahajul, who succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds.

The other two survived in the attack.
