Sibulan bomb threat
turns out false: PNP


A bomb threat in Sibulan, Negros Oriental, that turned out to be a hoax failed to disrupt classes at a the Sibulan Central Elementary School, which was also the venue for an activity of the Department of Education with DepEd Undersecretary Yolanda Quijano, congressmen, and other bigwigs attending.

The bomb threat was received via a text message sent to a radio anchorman early yesterday morning, Senior Supt. Rey Lyndon Lawas, provincial director of the Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental, said.

The anchorman, not wanting to cause undue public panic, passed on the text message to Lawas for verification.

Big waves may have swept
missing elderly man: family


An elderly man was reported missing by his daughter yesterday after he failed to return home the previous day while gathering firewood along the shorelines of Ajong village in San Jose town, Negros Oriental.

The daughter, Susan Casipong Balasabas, 50, asked the help of the Negros Oriental Search and Rescue group to help find her missing father, Antonio Casipong, 73.

She said the family believes the man was swept away by big waves.

‘No demoralization in army’

The Philippine Army yesterday debunked claims of creeping demoralization within the military organization, in connection with the implementation of Internal Peace and Security “Oplan Bayanihan”, as it maintained that the morale of solders remains high.

Army spokesman Col. Antonio Parlade said the claim that Oplan Bayanihan, a new campaign plan of the AFP to address the 40-year-old insurgency problem, will completely shut combat operations against the New People’s Army, is not true.

Parlade said army officers and enlisted personnel are in high spirits because they know that they will experience a little reprieve in combat operations through Oplan Bayanihan.
