The security forces have widened their hunt from the village, about 160km from here, towards Kampung Tanjung Batu, some 2km from Kampung Tanduo yesterday.
The shootouts had reportedly occurred in three locations from 4.15pm.
LAHAD DATU: Dozens of suspected sympathisers of the so called Sulu gunmen have been detained for questioning by police over the past fortnight.
They included relatives of the Sulu armed group's leader Raja Muda Azizmudie Kiram, a few uniformed personnel and a local politician here.
Police are believed to be particularly interested in questioning a very close relative of Azzimudie who had played an advisory role to the Sulu group, and has gone into hiding either here or in Semporna.
However, no official confirmation was available on the number of arrests so far and their identities as police try to establish the links of the Sulu armed group to local families and sympathisers.

"Ang sinasabi namin sa kanila na 'actually, hindi naman kailangan ng nurse na matapos ang BSN (BS Nursing). Kasi itong mga nurses, gusto lang nilang maging room nurse...
"E, sa Amerika or sa other countries, ano lang sila parang mag-aalaga... Hindi naman kailangan silang maging ganong kagaling..."
