The government has been beefing up troops in Basilan for planned punitive actions against MILF guerrillas accused of killing 14 Marines and beheading 10 of them in a clash on July 10. Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has ordered the offensive put on hold for 3 days to give a fact-finding mission a chance to identify the perpetrators. INQUIRER/RAFFY LERMA
