Soldiers seize NPA rebel documents, medicines

Troopers from the Eastern Mindanao Command (EMC) seized three sacks of NPA rebel subversive documents and two sacks of medicines during operations in Kitaotao, Bukidnon last Aug. 31.

The capture was made by patrolling elements of the 8th Infantry Battalion, EMC public affairs office chief Capt. Alberto Caber said on Wednesday.

He added the operations took place at 9: 30 a.m. in Barangay White Kulaman, Kitaotao town.

No NPA fighters were encountered during this mission.

Caber said the captured subversive documents are collection of reading materials on communism and approaches in overthrowing the government while the medicines are supplies of the rebels.
