DAVAO CITY – Suspected communist rebels have seized 4 tribal leaders in the southern Philippine province of Davao del Norte, the military said Saturday.
The Eastern Mindanao Command accused the New People’s Army of abducting Datu Danilo Angcomog, Datu Laris Landakay, Datu Jovanie Angcomog; and Datu Kalumpot Dalon at Sitio Bulo in the village of Dagohoy in Talaingod town.
Capt. Alberto Caber, an army spokesman, said the tribal leaders, who are natives of San Fernando town in Bukidnon province, were settling a feud between two warring groups when gunmen seized them for a still unknown reason.
He said soldiers from the 68th Infantry Battalion were sent to help local authorities in the search for the victims.
Other tribal leaders have appealed to the abductors for the safe release of the men and it was unknown whether their disappearance was connected to tribal war. No individual or group claimed responsibility for the abductions. (Mindanao Examiner)
