Muslim rebels with the the Moro National Liberation Front captured the chief of police for the Philippine city Zamboanga.

The chief was taken when trying to negotiate with the rebels to surrender. He was later let go unharmed.

But the hostage standoff with Muslim rebels continues and is now into its ninth day. Nearly 100 rebels are still holding other hostages in the area.

A CBN disaster relief team has been organized in the city to help feed more than 15,000 evacuees. Nearly 82,000 people have been displaced in the city as a result of the fighting.
