Candoni ambush
BY CARLA GOMEZ

The New People's Army yesterday claimed responsibility for the ambush on a police patrol car in Taytay Panaculan, Barangay Canigay, Cadoni, that left two policemen dead and others injured on February 18.

The NPA warned civilians from riding on police and Army vehicles because they are legitimate military targets, and should avoid their being used as shields during rebel attacks.

Andrea Guerrero, spokesperson of the NPA Armado Sumayang Jr. Command Southwest Negros Guerilla Front, claimed in a statement that the ambushed PNP unit is well known for its protection racket of those engaged in illegal gambling and illegal drug pushing in Cadoni town.moremoremore

Army, PNP slam rebels
BY GILBERT BAYORAN

The Armed Forces of the Philippines and National Police yesterday slammed the New People's Army for admitting that they were behind the recent ambush of policemen in Candoni, Negros Occidental.

“It was plain murder, that was done with treachery, and cannot be justified,” Lt. Col. Rey Tiongson, 3rd Infantry Division spokesman, yesterday said.

Tiongson dismissed claims that the slain and injured policemen were involved in illegal activities and called them a mere propaganda, to justify their atrocities. .moremoremore
