Al-Ustaj Umbra Amiril Kato (* 1946) is the founder of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) a group which seceded from Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Umbra Kato is Philippine's most wanted man though due to his still official membership in the MILF he is not hunted by the military. However a warrant of arrest was filed against him together with other BIFF members by the Philippine National Police. The Armed Forces of the Philippines, with some support with the MILF, launched Operation Darkhorse in a bid to arrest him in January 2014.
