TUGUEGARAO CITY—Twenty-four wooden boxes with 90 pieces of rocket warheads were found floating on a lagoon in Claveria town, Cagayan province on Thursday (Jan. 15), authorities said.
The rocket warheads were discovered by three fishermen from Barangay Taggat Norte and were turned over to Philippine Coast Guard and Cagayan police.
