About 10 persons have been killed and 23 others wounded in a family feud-triggered massacre in southern Philippines, the military said Tuesday.

The mass murdering at Alicia town of Zamboanga del Sur province on Monday night have been traced to a family feud, Military Spokesman Buenaventura Pascual said at a press conference.

Among the victims, there were many women and children who suffered gunshot wounds, the military said.
