MANILA -- Police said they have captured a suspected Moro rebel bomber believed to be involved in a 2009 landmine attack that killed two US Special Forces soldiers and a Filipino marine in a volatile southern province.

Senior Superintendent Abraham Orbita, Sulu provincial police chief, said Miraji Bairulla did not resist when government forces served a warrant for his arrest Sunday in Indanan town.

Bairullah, who uses the rebel name "Mahang," is a bomb expert of the rebel group the Moro National Liberation Front, according to Orbita.

Orbita said the suspect was among militants who placed a landmine that hit a passing Humvee and killed two US soldiers and a Filipino marine in Indanan on September 29, 2009, in Sulu, where Moro bandit groups are active. (AP)
