leaves 16 dead


MANILA - Super-typhoon Nanmadol (Mina) left at least 16 people dead after hitting the Philippines, and the toll is expected to rise as hopes of finding those missing fade, the civil defense chief said yesterday.

Over 61,000 people have been evacuated from their homes after Nanmadol, the strongest storm to hit the country this year, lashed the northern edge of the main island of Luzon at the weekend, causing landslides and floods.

Most of the 16 killed were buried in landslides, including two children in northern Baguio who were killed in an avalanche of rubbish at the city dump, said civil defense operations chief Benito Ramos.

Minor shot, in the leg

A 16-year-old was shot in the leg by motorcycle rider in tandem  ove the weekend  near the Tabuc-Tubig Barangay Hall, in  Dumaguete City.

Police investigators  disclosed that  the victim  who was also riding a motorcycle,  sustained a gunshot wound in the left leg and a head injury.

Cemeroy Monopollo, 16, and a  resident of Upper Lukewright, Dumaguete City said he  was with two companions  and  saw the suspects  who shot him.
