ZAMBOANGA CITY: Army officials said troops have recovered dozens of landmines and various materials used in the manufacture of improvised explosives believed to belong to the communist rebel group New People’s Army (NPA) in Agusan del Sur. The cache of landmines was discovered by civilians in the village of Mansanitas, according to Capt. Alberto Caber, a spokesman for the Eastern Mindanao Command. Also recovered in the area were eight sacks of PVC pipes, batteries, detonating cords, and improvised firing device. Gen. Ricardo Rainier Cruz 3rd, the Eastern Mindanao Command chief, said the discovery came a day after two NPA rebels—Robert Daging and Abet Guinson—surrendered to the 36th Infantry Battalion in Carmen town in the province of Surigao del Sur.
