Vice President Jejomar Binay paid tribute to a Filipino-American doctor who was among three Americans killed in Afghanistan last week. Binay conveyed his sympathy to the family of Dr. Jerry Umanos in a telephone conversation with the slain pediatrician’s 88-year-old father, Romeo, shortly after he arrived in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. The elder Umanos expressed his deep appreciation to both the Vice President and Ambassador to the United States Jose Cuisia Jr., for reaching out to the family. He said the remains of the 58-year-old doctor, who was shot and killed after a security guard opened fire on him and two other Americans at a hospital run by a Christian charity in Afghanistan is expected to arrive in Chicago on Thursday.
