5 suspected NPA rebels nabbed over Silay airport attack

Quezon City (13 October) -- THE MILITARY captured five suspected communist guerillas, including three minors, allegedly behind the attack on a major airport project in the central Philippines, a regional Army spokesman said Friday.

The suspects, Nathaniel Alisgar, 18; Noelo Tapio, 18; and two 17-year-olds, were apprehended in Telim village, Calatrava town, Negros Occidental province on Thursday after residents in the area tipped off Army troops, said Captain Reynante Besa of the 3rd Infantry Division.

"They were among those who torched the airport, according to witnesses," Besa told reporters in a phone interview.

Since Army troops caught up with the attackers in Calatrava last Wednesday, five gun battles have been reported.

Government forces have recovered a total of four M16 rifles, a.45-caliber pistol, a 12-gauge shotgun, and FN rifle, four rifle grenades, 200 rounds of ammunition for M16 machine gun, two bandoleers, a handheld radio, and medical supplies, Besa said. (PIA) [top]
