Two bishops and top Negros Occidental officials yesterday called on the public to pray for peace, following the deadly terrorist attacks that left 129 dead in Paris, and for the safety of the participants in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders' summit in Metro Manila this week.
“We pray for those who perished in the terrorist attacks in Paris and let us include in our prayer intentions the safety of all the official delegates in APEC,” Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra said.
The Philippine National Police yesterday called on the public to disregard scary messages circulating on social media warning of purported scenarios and events, in line with the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Manila starting Nov. 17, following terror attacks in Paris, France.
These messages only serve to add to public anxiety that may further lead to hysteria and panic, the PNP statement said.
