Seven residents were killed in Barangay Tingin-Tingin in Kauswagan town, while four died and one was wounded in Barangay Bualan in Tubod town. The names of the fatalities were not immediately available.

The “prisoners of war” were identified as Carlito Tabilao, Angelito Reyes, Eboy Tabelero, a certain Oniona, Juanito Waga and Margarito Canete. Full Story
