Communist attacks kill 6 in Philippines

A string of attacks by communist rebels in the southern Philippines killed six people, including five security personnel, as the guerrillas pressured the government to release jailed comrades, officials said Wednesday.


Two special forces soldiers ambushed while en route to secure a government convoy were among those killed in seven attacks Tuesday initiated by the New People's Army rebels in eastern Mindanao Island, said military spokesman Lt. Col. Leopoldo Galon. (AP)
