COTABATO CITY

3 teachers slain

Three Cotabato City-based Arabic school teachers were killed when ambushed by unidentified men in Libungan, North Cotabato, on Sunday.

Libungan town police director Chief Inspector Bernard Tayong said Ustadz Usman Badtingo, Ustadz Usman Abdulla and Ustadz Abdulla Guiamel, all teachers of an Arabic school and residents of Campo Muslim here, were aboard two motorcycles and were heading for Pikit town when fired at around 3 p.m.

Tayong said Abdurakman al-Taib, also an Arabic school teacher, who survived the ambush, told police he had no idea why they were ambushed, as they had no known enemies. Tayong said local police believed the motive could be a personal grudge. Edwin Fernandez and Williamor Magbanua, Inquirer Mindanao
