NPA suspects attack:
Three killed, 3 injured


A group of civilians were ambushed in Sitio Toril, Brgy. Salamanca, Toboso, Negros Occidental, yesterday by about 30 suspected New People’s Army rebels who killed three of them, including a minor, on the spot and injured three others, the  police and military said.

The six victims, who included two high school students, were on board an Isuzu Elf Canter service vehicle of Brgy. Salamanca, and were on their way to Toboso town, at about 7 a.m. yesterday, when they were fired upon by a group of suspected rebels, with two amazons, armed with M-16 and M-14 assault rifles, police investigations showed.

Senior Insp. Nestor Tuadles yesterday identified the three fatalities as Edmar Sultan, 14, of Toboso National High School, Rodolfo Salipod, 56, driver of the Salamanca barangay service vehicle, and Ena Pata, 50.moremoremore

Bishop urges good people:
Run for office in 2010 polls


The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines yesterday called on competent persons of integrity who are committed to change to get directly involved in principled partisan politics, and become candidates in the 2010 presidential and national elections.

The Catholic bishops also said they unequivocally condemn as a betrayal of public trust any attempt to abort the elections of 2010, and categorically say no to any attempt by congress to convert itself into a constituent assembly.

If charter change be needed, let it be after 2010 and by a mode that is credible, widely participative, transparent and not self-serving, the CBCP said.moremoremore
