The rebels, led by a certain Ka Rudy of Guerrilla Front Larangan 2 operating in the province, fled after sensing that the Army rangers overpowered them.

The soldiers found a rebel camp and recovered seven Molotov bombs, two boxes of government arsenal of 5.56-mm sniper bullets, empty M16 magazines, an Epson projector, a transistor radio, four cell phones, three rolls of electric wires, a generator set, two gallons of gasoline, two sacks of rice, food, other supplies, and documents. /lzb
