Bacuag, Surigao del Norte (February 8) -- At least 15 heavily armed men believed to be communist-New People's Army (NPA) rebels raided a house of a retired Army officer and carted away arms and bullets at the hinterland of Sitio Baliw, Barangay Payapag, Bacuag town, Surigao del Norte province, police reported Monday.

The raid of the residence of retired Staff Sergeant Edijan A. Tadifa happened at 5 a.m. on Sunday.
