General Santos City (24 June) -- Elements of the 1002nd Brigade of the Philippine Army (PA) and the Regional Intelligence and Investigation Division 12 arrested over the weekend a New People's Army (NPA) Commander believed to be responsible for the recent attack of Tampakan Police Station in South Cotabato.

In an interview over local radio station here, 1002nd Brigade Commander Col. Ranier Cruz revealed that a certain Felix Capella alias Kumander Taw-taw was apprehended onboard a bus while on his way to Digos City.

Cruz added that Kumander Taw-taw has three pending warrants of arrest for Murder under the Kidapawan City Court.

Seized from Kumander Taw-taw are hand grenade and a folded knife.

Meanwhile, figures from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) indicated that at least 2,296 insurgents have been neutralized from 2006 up to May this year following President Arroyo's directive to end the insurgency problem before her term ends in 2010.

It added that the neutralization of the 2,296 rebels was by way of killing, surrender or capture. (PIA-SarGen) [top]
