3 alleged Armenian terrorists barred entry into the country

Three Armenian nationals suspected to be members of a terrorist group have been barred entry into the country by Bureau of Immigration (BI) authorities at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport over the weekend. In a report, Cresencio Ablan, chief of the Anti-Terrorist Unit (ATU) based at NAIA, identified the Armenians as Petros Tunasyan, male, 39 years old; Armen Petrosyan, 38 years old; and Suren Hunanyan, 32 years old. The Armenians arrived in Manila at 3:30 p.m., Saturday, via Thai Airways, which came from Bangkok. They were barred entry, or “excluded,” and sent back to their point of origin in Bangkok, said Ablan in his report. The suspects were spotted by members of the ATU Intelligence Officers Peter Tan, William Paterno Bell and Rudy David at the immigration arrival area while the same were waiting for their turn to be cleared by the immigration officials. One of the suspects was seen holding a video camera and shooting details of the arrival area. This prompted the immigration authorities to approach the group and checked their passports. Full Story
