Government forces have arrested an Islamic militant wanted for deadly bombings and kidnapping in southern Philippines, the military said Friday.

Salam Maja Hassan, a suspected member of the Abu Sayyaf extremist group, was arrested Wednesday in a village in southern port city of Zamboanga, said Maj. General Benjamin Dolorfino, the regional military chief.

Hassan was wanted for planting bombs in Zamboanga city and participating in the abduction of 20 tourists, including three Americans, in a western Philippine resort in 2001.

Dolorfino said Hassan was arrested for murder, frustrated murder and kidnapping with serious illegal detention.

The 340-member Abu Sayyaf, believed to have ties with al Qaeda network, is blamed for the most deadly terrorist attacks and high-profile kidnappings in the Philippines.
