‘NPA terrorizing Negros'

The New People's Army is bent on terrorizing Negros Island Region, Maj. Gen. Jon Aying, 3rd Infantry Division commander said yesterday.

Six policemen and a civilian died yesterday in separate attacks initiated by the New People's Army in Sitio Gi-ob, Brgy. Magsaysay, Guihulngan, Negros Oriental. Three policemen and two civilians were also hurt, military records showed.

Aying said the attempt of the NPA to kill Guihulngan City Councilor Eddie Dela Rita and the inhumane killing of the six policemen and a civilian is a clear manifestation of their true intent of terrorizing the Negros Island, to prove that peace and development is far from realization. moremoremore
