Peasant couple murdered in Northern Samar
Peasant couple Alberto and Maritess Durin were killed when CAFGU elements under the 20th IB indiscriminately strafed their house in Barangay Natawo, Palapag, Northern Samar on July 26. Their grandchild, a minor, was also wounded during the incident. This is the second case of indiscriminate strafing by soldiers in Palapag since June.
Earlier, military agents reportedly killed Nonoy Truza, a barangay councilor and chairperson of a local association of agrarian reform beneficiaries in Barangay Nagbinlod, Sta. Catalina, Negros Oriental during the last week of June.
