Philippines: Beach terror alert


Reported here:
Newly assumed PNP provincial director Sr. Supt. Omar Buenafe may have his first bap tism of fire, courtesy of the rebel movement after intelligence reports say that three southern towns are due for attack by the NPAs.
These towns are Dauin, Siaton and Zamboanguita of southern Negros.
Incidentally, these are also the towns where beach resorts owned by foreigners with Filipina spouses, are splattered all over.
Buenafe did not cite specific targets but police stations and beach resorts are the primary areas on the watch list by the police and a special task force.
Only recently, President Arroyo ordered the formation of a special air, land and sea task force from the air force and navy to guard the shorelines of the province and that of Siquijor, Panglao, in Bohol, Apo island, and those in Dipolog for possible sea criminals, pirates and kidnappers. One of the modus operandi of terrorists is to pose as soldiers, riding on commandeered government vehicles, pretend to hold inspections and make a surprise attack.
