Don't bring packages for strangers - info agency exec

BACOLOD CITY (13 December) -- Beware of strangers who offer to pay you for delivering their boxes or bags. The package may contain bombs.

The warning came from Philippine Information Agency Deputy Director General Leo Omoso Tuesday who called on Negrenses to be vigilant against terror attacks from lawless groups. Omoso briefed participants of a counter-terrorism forum held at the Provincial Capitol in Bacolod City.

He said terrorists used aircraft, public transport, homemade bombs, chemical and biological weapons.

Omoso urged parents to warn their children against talking to strangers who may request them to deliver items.

He cited the case of a minor who was asked to deliver a bag that contained bombs, which exploded in a commercial center in Mindanao.

Senior Superintendent Ronilo Quebrar, director of the Bacolod City Police Office, encouraged the creation of a neighborhood watch.

Quebrar asked residents to immediately report the presence of any suspicious looking person or activities in their communities.

Among the terrorist groups operating in the Philippines are the Abu Sayyaf Group, the Jemaah Islamiyah and the Rajah Sulaiman Group, which are affiliated with the Al-Qaeda network and financed by Osama Bin Laden.

The authorities have pointed to the Abu Sayyaf Group as behind the series of bombings in Mindanao and Metro Manila.

Aside from the Muslim extremists groups, the United States and European Union have tagged the communist New People's Army as a terrorist organization. (PIA) [top]
