100 Philippine Marines Battle 500 Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Abu Sayyaf

Here's a link to the video to what happened this week in Tipo-Tipo Basilan. About 100 Philippine Marines encountered almost 500 Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Abu Sayaff terrorists. They were out to locate and rescue an Italian priest kidnapped by the group. 14 Marines were killed, ten of whom were beheaded. The Philippine Marines are still using M16A1s and M14s. The video also shows the dud 81mm mortal shells (victims of high humidity in the jungle). Gunships are UH1Hs and Hughes 500s. APCs are the Chaimite V150 and the Simba. Sorry, there's only limited English spoken in the news item:
The wise learn many things from their foes.
