Body of Malaysian shot dead in Philippines buried

The body of a Malaysian militant who was shot dead in Davao, Philippines was buried Thursday at the Kampung Parit Haji Abdul Rahman Muslim Cemetery, in Benut.

The remains of Mohd Noor Fikrie Abd Kahar, 26, were buried at about 7am, attended by almost a 100 relatives and friends during a light drizzle.

The body had arrived at the Masjid Jamek Temenggong Daeng Abdul Rahman, Benut at about 5.30am.

Mohd Noor Fikrie's body was flown from Davao at about 9pm Wednesday and arrived at the KL International Airport at about 1am.

Meanwhile Mohd Noor Fikrie's father, Abd Kahar Sirun, 53, thanked the Malaysian government for having made arrangements to bring back the body of the eldest of his four children.

The media had previously reported that Mohd Noor Fikrie was shot dead by Philippine police at a hotel in Davao last Friday, after struggling with the police who wanted to check the sling bag containing a home-made bomb carried by his wife.
