• Vendor, sweepers awarded for aborted bombing in Manila


    MAYOR Joseph Estrada on Monday gave cash rewards to individuals who discovered an improvised explosive device (IED) planted near the US Embassy on Roxas Boulevard in Manila and the street vendor who identified one of the arrested suspects in a foiled terrorist attack last November 28. Estrada gave P100,000 to Eli Balabagan, street sweeper employed by the Department of Public Works and Highways, and P50,00 each to Wenifreda Francisco and Maria Dolores Ostolano, both of the city’s Department of Public Services. Street vendor Josie Camacho also received P50,000 cash for providing an eyewitness’ description of one of the arrested suspects. The mayor also honored Senior Police Officer 4 Emmanuel Fallaria of Manila Police District-Explosive Ordnance Division and Chief Insp. Jay Dimaandal, chief of the Special Operations Unit, for swiftly responding to the scene and quickly defusing the IED. Both were given P50,000 each.
