    0

    A militiaman was killed and another wounded as about 40 members of the New People’s Army (NPA) harassed a Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit (Cafgu) detachment in Sibagat town, Agusan del Sur province early Friday morning. Major Leo Bongosia, spokesman of the 4th Infantry “Diamond” Division, identified the slain Cafgu member as Elan Vincolado. He also identified the wounded militiaman as Edwin Cempron, whom he said is now out of danger. Bongosia said the army received earlier intelligence information regarding the impending attack and put in place the necessary preparations. The ensuing firefight went on for five hours before the enemy fled. Some residents in the area reported of six dead bodies brought along by the fleeing rebels. However, military sources could not confirm the report in the absence of body count.
