From the Mindanao Examiner BlogSpot site (Jun 28): Security forces capture 2 NPA rebels in Zamboanga Sur

Security forces captured two communist rebels following a firefight Friday in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga del Sur, officials said.

Officials said the soldiers and policemen were patrolling the village of Datagan in Guipos town when they ran into a group of New People’s Army rebels and a firefight ensued. The two rebels have been identified by the military as Wilfredo Dalumos and Edgar Candilansa.

Troops also recovered an Ingram machine pistol and fragmentation grenade from the rebels who were also tagged as behind the killing of a government soldier in San Miguel town in Zamboanga del Sur.

Both Dalumos and Candilansa were being interrogated by the police.

The NPA, armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines, has been waging a secessionist war for decades now.
