[TIMELINE] Sabah's bloody Friday

Although Sulu Sultanate spokesman Abraham Idjirani insisted that 10 died from the incident, Malaysian Ambassador to Manila Dato Mohd Zamri Kassim, in a meeting with Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario, reported that only 3 died -- the owner of the house where the Kirams stayed and two members of the Malaysian security forces.

Kassim added that one Malaysian cop was wounded while 10 followers of the Sultan of Sulu have surrendered to Malaysian authorities. 

With this development, Malaysia declared the 17-day standoff in Sabah over. 

DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said the Philippines issued a note verbale asking Malaysia for a full report on the assault.

4:30 pm - The sultan's spokesman tells reporters that 100 Filipinos in Sabah had been arrested, signalling the start of a "crackdown."

Sabah state police chief Hamza Taib confirmed that 12 "intruders," who ventured out of their base died during the encounter, according to a report published by Malaysia's The Star

Prime Minister Najib Razak said two Malaysian police officers were also killed in the encounter while 3 others were wounded. Najib was quoted as saying that he was "very sad" over the incident but now there was "no grace period for the group to leave." 

8:00 pm - Malacañang concedes the standoff is not over given the presence of Malaysian security forces and Kiram's followers in Sabah. The Aquino administration makes another appeal to the Kiram family to return to the Philippines. - compiled by Angela Casauay/Rappler.com
