COTABATO CITY -- Some 37 assorted long and short firearms were confiscated by government military troops Saturday in a gathering of Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) members in Buluan, Maguindanao.

Lieutenant Colonel Edwin Alburo, spokesperson of 6th Army Division, said the MNLF members, who are former rebels, were forced to surrender their firearms after troops were sent to the area to check on a tip about armed men roaming the place.

Around 12:30 p.m., following a negotiation, the MNLF members under Ustadz Jamaluddin Abdullah, chief of the group's Dragon Border Command, agreed to surrender their firearms.

The MNLF members were neither arrested nor investigated and they were allowed to go home.

MNLF members are not allowed to carry firearms under the peace agreement it signed with the government.
