Malaysia vowed to beef up security March 4, in an eastern state where at least 26 people have been reported killed after the invasion by Philippine followers of a self-styled sultan. Malaysians have been shocked by the militant incursion, which began when an estimated 100-300 people landed on the shores of Sabah on February 12, claiming the state for the heir to a former Philippine sultanate.
