Philippines

    Communist rebels wearing army uniforms walked into a police station in the southern Philippines on Aug. 22 and left with 11 assault rifles and handguns, officials said. Around 20 members of the New People’s Army (NPA) emptied San Isidro’s police station, which was located inside the town hall, at around noon without firing a shot. “They came in two vans pretending to turn over a captured rebel,” Eleuterio Quilisadio, police chief in the southern province of Davao Oriental, told reporters.
