MedCo condemns Central Mindanao bombings

by RG Alama

Davao City (12 October) -- Mindanao Economic Development Council Chair Undersecretary Virgilio Leyretana has condemned the two bombing incidents which rocked the town of Makilala in North Cotabato and Tacurong City in Sultan Kudarat, killing at least 6 persons and wounding 32 others.

The twin bombings that occurred hours apart from each other struck the public market in Tacurong and the town plaza of Makilala as the municipality was celebrating its 52nd anniversary. Usec. Leyretana had branded the attack as a barbaric and cowardly act, here is his statement in full.

"We condemn in strongest terms these ruthless and senseless acts of terrorism done against innocent civilians in Makilala, North Cotabato and Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat.

Not even an iota of reason can ever justify the conduct of these barbaric and cowardly acts against human beings."

But Mindanawans will always be one as ever in not allowing terrorists to cow peace loving citizens of Mindanao"

We have surmounted similar and even worse challenges in the past. The people of Central Mindanao will move on." (MEDCo/PIA XI) [top]
