Misuari denied he was involved in the incursion of dozens of armed followers of Kiram in the Malaysian state of Sabah in an effort to assert their claim to the area. Meanwhile Kiram said his gunmen would 'fight to the last man' as Malaysian troops mounted an operation to end a deadly three weeks-old stand-off in Sabah on Borneo island.
