Gunmen kill 3 in Philippines ambush

Three grocery clerks were killed yesterday and eight co-workers wounded in an ambush in the southern Philippines which police said may have been part of a clan war.
The victims were on their way to work on the island of Basilan early yesterday when unidentified gunmen attacked their truck, provincial police chief Senior Superintendent Salik Macapantar said.
He said investigators suspected a clan war involving rival Muslim families as the motive, adding that the gunmen fled.
"We are looking into a family feud as the motive behind the ambush," he told reporters by telephone from Isabela, the provincial capital.
