Return of Negrenses
from Libya hits snag
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The return to the Philippines of Negrenses in strife-torn Libya, who were set to board yesterday a vessel sent by the Philippine government to rescue overseas Filipino workers there, has been postponed.
Ernesto Begot Jr. of Barangay Bata, Bacolod City, said they were unable to board the vessel that was supposed to pick them up as they were told that the new date for its arrival at the Benghazi port in Libya is Wednesday.
A passenger tricycle, that was allegedly racing with another, figured in an accident Friday, that caused injuries to 10 students and two drivers, at the national highway of Brgy. Cubay, La Carlota City, Negros Occidental.
Chief Inspector Gary Alan Resuma, La Carlota police chief, said the students of the La Carlota City College and the driver, Artemio Villanueva, were brought to the Don Salvador Benedicto Memorial Hospital.
Investigations by the La Carlota police showed that Villanueva, who was driving a Kawasaki Barako 175 tricycle with the students as passengers, tried to overtake another tricycle at the Hacienda San Roque highway in the barangay.
