Philippine rebels say they will not surrender

Al Jazeera meets one of the most wanted men in the Philippines, the leader of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Movement.

    The Philippine military has said at least 40 fighters have been killed since it began an offensive against a rebel group on Monday.
     
    It also said that the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters rebel group (BIFF) will soon cease to exist.
     
    The leader of the BIFF, however, says their struggle is far from over.
