Community coop
tightens security


The Perpetual Help Community Cooperative in Dumaguete City has tightened security measures in its branches in Negros Oriental, Siquijor and Tagbilaran, Bohol, after the recent daytime robbery at the Agencia Belen pawnshop in Dumaguete.

Maricar Vensuelo-Aranas of the PHCCI marketing and advertisement department, said they immediately responded to the call of the police for financial institutions in Dumaguete to institute and strengthen security measures following intelligence reports that members of a robbery/hold-up gang from Mindanao had arrived in the province.

PHCCI beefed up security personnel inside and outside its main office in Dumaguete, and installed closed-circuit television cameras in the premises.

NPA smears bombs
with feces: AFP

MANILA – Communist rebels in the Philippines smeared a roadside bomb that injured seven soldiers with human feces and snake venom, the military said yesterday.

The wounded soldiers tested positive for potentially deadly bacteria, said Lt. Victor Dado, medical officer at the military hospital where the men were taken for treatment following Tuesday's attack.

“We found (the bacteria in) the wounds of the soldiers during examination and treatment yesterday morning. It will aggravate the effects of the landmines," Dado said in a statement.
