PANGASINAN

Fishkill strikes Anda

The fishkill scourge has again affected the town of Anda, days after the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) declared its waters in western Pangasinan free of red tide.

Nestor Domenden, BFAR regional director, said the fishkill was discovered along a kilometer of Kakiputan Channel flowing off  Siapar village on Christmas Day, prompting fish cage operators to harvest their stocks.

The operators began selling fish at P30 to P40 per kilo at the fish port in nearby Bolinao town.

The BFAR has not yet determined how many cages were affected by the fishkill.

The BFAR lifted the red tide alert this week in Anda and Bolinao after three consecutive tests proved that waters in western Pangasinan no longer showed signs of toxin. Yolanda Sotelo, Inquirer Northern Luzon

COTABATO CITY

2 dead in attack

Two persons were killed while six others, including a village chair, were wounded when unidentified gunmen opened fire on a commuter van bearing mostly members of a political clan here near the city’s public cemetery on Tuesday.

City police director Senior Superintedent Danny Reyes said van driver Pike Sultan and passenger Shermin Abdula died without getting treatment in a hospital after the ambush in Barangay Rosary Heights 5.

The wounded victims included Rosary Heights chair Amir Sola; his wife and daughter, who were not identified in the report; and his relatives, Muslimin Salik, Baikan Abdula and Tayan Kanlas.

Reyes said  politics was among the angles the police had considered as among the motives for the ambush. Charlie C. Señase, Inquirer Mindanao
