Nine people including four Philippine security officials were killed Tuesday during clashes with the Abu Sayyaf kidnap group on a popular resort island as millions prepare to travel for the Easter holiday.

Five gunmen were killed while four assault rifles and an improvised explosive device were recovered in the fighting, officials said.
