Gunmen kill 9 police, villagers in Philippines

Published: 01.27.13, 10:47 / Israel News

Gunmen hiding in a sugarcane field ambushed a truckload of policemen and village guards who had helped secure a village dance festival, killing nine and wounding nine others Sunday in the central Philippines, officials said.

About 20 gunmen raked the victims' truck with automatic weapon fire before dawn in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon in Negros Occidental province, firing nearly 300 rounds of ammunition. One police officer was among those killed and two others were wounded, provincial police Chief Celestino Guara said. (AP)
