Government operatives have arrested four New People’s Army (NPA) rebels in Bukidnon and Compostela Valley.

Landmines, ammunition for an M203 grenade launcher and t-shirts with NPA logos were seized from the rebels.

Government troops recovered an M16 rifle, four improvised landmines, a 500-meter electrical wire, 18 backpacks, 13 pairs of rain boots, medical and dental paraphernalia and assorted personal belongings.
