The baby, who was born at about 11 p.m. Friday, was found naked and bitten by ants at about 2:40 a.m. Saturday, Police Officer 3 Julieta Dimpo, Kabankalan Police Women and Children Protection Desk assistant head, said.

Dimpo said the baby was crying when she was being cleaned at the barangay clinic. She was later transferred to the Lorenzo D. Zayco District Hospital in Kabankalan, where she was declared dead on arrival. moremoremore

Locales from the different sectors of the Negros Oriental community expressed varied opinions on the sixth and final State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III during the opening of the 16th Congress at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City yesterday.
