BACOLOD CITY—Two militiamen were killed on Sunday morning when communist rebels raided their detachment and took nine firearms in Sagay City, Negros Occidental.
Senior Supt. William Senoron, Negros Occidental police director, said at least 40 members of the New People’s Army (NPA) attacked the detachment of the Special Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit (Cafgu) about 5:30 a.m. at Sitio Aliwanay, Barangay General Luna in Sagay.
He said the communist rebels took hostage two militiamen who were initially able to escape during the encounter between the rebels and Army soldiers. The soldiers were pursuing the rebels.
The attack came nine days after communist rebels killed three soldiers and wounded two others in an ambush in Barangay San Isidro, Toboso town. JE/rga
