(AP Photo/Aaron Favila)MANILA (AP) – President Benigno Aquino III asked a royal Muslim clan leader in the southern Philippines to order his followers to withdraw as soon as possible from Malaysian land they claim as their own, warning Tuesday of legal action against them and potential trouble.

Speaking on national television, Aquino told Sultan Jamalul Kiram III that his group of 180 followers led by his younger brother and including up to 30 armed men was risking a violent end to a two-week standoff by insisting on holding out. Kiram’s sultanate has been claiming the land in a coastal village in Lahad Datu district in Malaysia’s eastern Sabah state for nearly a century.
