Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III RAFFY LERMA

DIGOS CITY, Philippines – Malaysian police authorities arrested a close kin of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, a Sabah-based radio station said, quoting Sabah Police Commissioner Hamza Taib on Tuesday.

It was not clear, however, how close the relationship between Jamalul and his arrested kin was as Hamza would not give additional details, the radio station, whose broadcast was monitored here, said.
