Key suspect in
massacre surrenders

MANILA – Feared and loathed by his enemies, Andal Ampatuan Jr., is known as the "hatchet man" of a powerful Muslim clan in the southern Philippines whose family history is written in blood.

A chubby, stone-faced man in his 40s with a penchant for expensive guns, Ampatuan Jr. is the son and namesake of the clan patriarch who has ruled as governor of Maguindanao province for most of this decade.

Ampatuan Jr. surrendered to authorities yesterday after police named him as the top suspect in this week's massacre of 57 people who were allegedly targeted to end a political challenge from a rival clan. moremoremore
