Two Broadcasters Ambushed

A Legazpi City radio announcer was slain and another broadcaster in Davao City was wounded in two ambushes, police said yesterday. John Villanueva Jr., 53, an announcer with Legazpi City radio station dzGB, was riding a motorcycle on his way home when he was shot dead by unidentified assailants at about 7:50 p.m. Monday in Barangay Tagaytay in Camalig, Albay, police said. In another incident, Juan “Jun” Porres Pala, an announcer for radio station dxGO in Davao City, had just finished his three-hour program yesterday morning and was riding a taxi with three bodyguards when five men in a black Urvan opened fire on him, wounding him in the buttocks, police said. Pala, 48, known for his fiery criticism of communist insurgents in the South having founded the anti-communist Alsa Masa movement in the late 1980s, said he and his three bodyguards fired back, wounding one of the attackers. Lawmen found about 100 empty shells at the ambush scene, near the end of the Airport Road just in the vicinity of Vincent Heights. Full Story
