A GUNMAN believed to be a member of the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) shot and killed a soldier on Christmas Day in the province of Sulu.

Brigadier General Alan Arrojado, Joint Task Group Sulu commander, identified the victim as Private Bryan Aquino Sanoy, a member of the Philippine Army.

Sanoy was shot by a motorcycle-riding gunman around 9:30 a.m. Friday in the village of Asturias, Jolo, Sulu.

Arrojado said Sanoy, who was hit twice, was rushed to the hospital by responding policemen but he didn't make it alive.
