Siege of Malaysian village ends with deadly clashes

At least 14 people have died in clashes to end the siege of a village in Malaysia's Sabah province by a Philippines clan, police say.

Lahad Datu was occupied in early February by members of a Muslim royal clan from the Philippines calling itself the Royal Army of Sulu.

They are demanding recognition as the rightful owners of Sabah province.
