0

Authorities in the metro are on full alert following the arrest of the widow of slain terrorist leaders Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan and Khadafy Janjalani.

National Capital Region Police Office chief Director Oscar Albayalde in an interview said they are on alert for possible retaliation of terror groups amid the arrest of Juromee Dongon.

Albayalde said they have yet to receive reports of any direct terror threat in Metro Manila.

Dongon was arrested over the weekend in Lanao del Norte along with four suspected local terror group members, including a former cop.

Dongon has been accused of assisting and supporting terrorists including Marwan, who was killed in an ill-fated SAF operation in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.

Firearms and explosives were seized from Dongon and her cohorts.
