Sabah crisis in photos
Malaysian troops backed by fighter jets assaulted the camp of an armed Filipino group on Tuesday, escalating a crisis triggered when followers of a sultan from southern Philippines sailed last month to Borneo island’s northern state of Sabah to stake a territorial claim. 74-year-old sultan Jamalul Kiram III says he is the head of the Sultanate of Sulu, which once controlled parts of Borneo. Kiram’s family, as heirs to the sultanate, receive token annual compensation from Malaysia as lease payments for Sabah. Photos show the progression of the crisis.
