MANILA, Philippines — A case of frustrated murder was filed on Friday against the four personnel of the pineapple plantation who fired on members of the Manobo-Pulangihon indigenous tribe who were trying to occupy a portion of their claimed ancestral domain while being accompanied by presidential candidate Ka Leody De Guzman.

Police Regional Office-10 spokesperson Lt. Col Michelle Olaivar said one of the victims of the shooting filed the complaint against the four personnel of the plantation before the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor of Malaybalay, Bukidnon.
