"Some of the detainees are linked to members of the Abu Sayyaf", pointed out, however, Mario Buyuccan, a responsible officer of the local police.

Meanwhile, 14 inmates, including suspected Abu Sayyaf fighters and drug dealers, escaped early Sunday from a jail in a new building that also houses the police headquarters in a government compound in Sulu's main town of Jolo, police said.

The casualties were among 14 prisoners who escaped from a police station jail in war-torn Jolo, authorities said. "Our troops responded and the inmates were killed and wounded in hot pursuit operations", Buyuccan told Agence France-Presse.
