Philippine security forces captured Friday another suspect involved in last year's gruesome killing of 57 people in Maguindanao.

Senior Superintendent Alex Lineses, the head of police in Maguindanao, said the suspect Tong Guiamano, did not resist arrest when cops raided his hideout in the provincial capitol of Shariff Aguak. Authorities presented him a warrant of arrest issued by a local court.

Lineses said Guiamano was allegedly among those who participated in the Maguindanao massacre.

Members of the influential Ampatuan clan were suspected to be behind last year's murder of 57 people. Former Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Anmpatuan Jr., is confined at the National Bureau of Investigation jail in Manila and is facing multiple murder charges.
