LEGAZPI CITY — A suspected New People’s Army (NPA) leader and another unidentified rebel were killed on Tuesday, August 2, in a clash with the police and the military in Iriga City in Camarines Sur, a report from Philippine Army said Wednesday, August 3.

Major John Paul Belleza, public affairs chief of the Philippine Army’s 9th Infantry Division, said one of the fatalities was identified as Danilo Bodino, aka “Aryong,” “Elsie” and “Billy,” commander of a platoon of Larangan 1 of Komiteng Probinsya 5 of the Bicol Regional Party Committee.


Belleza said concerned citizens tipped off the military of the presence of armed men in Barangay (village) San Vicente.


The Army’s 49th Infantry Battalion and the Iriga City police conducted a combat operation that resulted in a brief firefight with at least five NPA rebels at around 12:30 a.m.

Recovered from the clash scene were an M16 rifle, a laptop, cellphones and other subversive documents.
