ZAMBOANGA CITY – A Filipino physician was wounded in an assassination attempt in Cotabato City, police said Wednesday.
Dr. Remus Magabilen was shot by motorcycle gunmen as he drove his truck late Tuesday in downtown Cotabato.
Despite his wound, Magabilen still managed to drive until he reached the hospital.
The attackers escaped after the shooting, and the motive of the ambush is still unknown.
No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the failed murder, but gun attacks in Cotabato are not uncommon and many of the killings remain unresolved. AL JACINTO
