Security forces fail to capture Zambo gunmen

PAGADIAN CITY – Security forces have failed to capture a group of gunmen who abducted a couple and killed 6 people in Zamboanga del Norte province in southern Philippines.

But officials said the hunt continues in the province where several rebel groups are actively operating. Police said at least 5 gunmen were involved in the killings which occurred in Piacan village in Sirawai town on Saturday.

Chief Inspector Helen Galvez, a regional police spokesperson, identified those killed as Amsid Maugag Callun, Absar Julkanain Gumba, Kabiran Saliuddin Ginsing, Saddam Baitulla Tahir, Jaayri Bairulla Lumihig and Muslimin Adan. A minor, Jering Carbi, was also wounded.

She said the fate of the couple Rufo, 62, and Helen Roda, 64, is still unknown. The gunmen snatched the duo and used them as shield against pursuing soldiers. The armed men arrived by boat in the village.

No individual or group claimed responsibility for the attack. (Mindanao Examiner)
