Sulu army set for long war

Royal Sulu Army prepares for long battle with no end in sight against Malaysian forces for control of Sabah.

    The deadly standoff between the Royal Sulu Army and Malaysian forces in Sabah has continued for weeks.

    Men from far-flung villages of the southern Philippines are heading to Sabah. They hope to resurrect the kingdom of the Sultanate of Sulu. 

    They believe that Sabah is theirs and they will fight on until this is agreed.
