South-east Asia’s most-wanted terrorist and two other senior militants were killed today in a U.S.-backed air strike in the Philippines, military chiefs said.

Malaysian Zulkifi bin Hir, known as Marwan, a top leader of the al Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiyah terror network was apparently killed in a dawn strike on a militant stronghold on a southern island.

The leader of the Philippines-based Abu Sayyaf militants, Umbra Jumdail, and Singaporean leader in Jemaah Islamiyah, Abdullah Ali, were also apparently killed.
