Federal Bureau of Investigation confirms that the biological sample provided to them by Philippine government is from Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan. Marwan is considered as Southeast Asia’s Osama Bin Laden. It is alleged that he is a supplier to terrorist organizations and also conducts bomb-making training for terrorist organizations, specifically the Abu Sayyaf Group.
“On Wednesday afternoon, according to highly reliable News5 sources, the FBI sent a simple message to Philippine authorities: “DNA matched,” a signal that the process of verifying whether the sample obtained had indeed belonged to the Malaysian terrorist,” Interaksyon.com reports.
“Citing sources, a report on “24 Oras” on Wednesday said the DNA sample from a body at the site of the operation matched that of Marwan’s based on test conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” GMANetwork.com reports.
Special Action Force troopers managed to cut a finger from Marwan to be sent as biological sample. The DNA of the biological sample was compared to the DNA of Marwan’s brother in Guantanamo.
