BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The Philippine National Police is on the alert following a report that newly trained members of the terror group, Abu Sayyaf Group, are to be deployed to the provinces of Negros Oriental, Negros Occidental and Cebu.

Acting PNP provincial director, Supt. Alet Virtucio, yesterday assured the public that stringent security measures are in place to avert any possible terror attack by the Abu Sayyaf in Negros Oriental, especially in the capital city of Dumaguete.

Virtucio, however, said the intelligence report on the terror threat has yet to be verified.

Acting provincial police director Supt. Alet Virtucio, however, said yesterday Sunday that the reported presence of two alleged members of the Ozamiz group has to be validated yet.

Reports reaching the Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental said the armed men had been spotted for at least two days at a mall in Dumaguete.

Bacolod, a pastor of the World of Life Church, was gunned down by six suspected rebels inside a church Tuesday last week in Brgy. Calupa-an, Guihulngan City.

Elsa Bacolod, his wife, who wept as she gave her testimony, said the NPA used her as a human shield, while the gunmen indiscriminately fired at the church, and at the residence of Calupaan Brgy. Capt. Joseph Audie Cabugnason, 2Lt. Avegale Pequiras, of the 11th Infantry Battalion said.
