NPA rebels gun down suspected military informer in Masbate

LEGAZPI CITY, April 28 (PNA) -- A 33-year-old farmer was gunned down by New People's Army (NPA) rebels on suspicion of being a military-police informer at Sitio Maligaya, Barangay MacArthur, Monreal, Masbate, on Monday night.

A police report said victim William Briones Jr. was on his way home in Barangay Sto. Nino at about 7 p.m. when the suspects blocked his way and shot him dead.

The rebels casually walked away after their mission.

The report said the NPA had long suspected Briones of being a military-police asset, allegedly giving information on their activities in the area. (PNA) FFC/FGS/EMC/CBD/EBP
