Suspected communist insurgents ambushed a truck carrying police and village guards in an attack which left nine people dead and wounded at least six in the central Philippines yesterday, an official said.
The police and village guards were returning from securing a town festival in the central island of Negros before dawn when about 30 heavily-armed gunmen opened fire on them, said Chief Inspector Rico Santotome.
Among the dead were one policeman, six village guards, the wife of a guard and the driver of the truck, said the police spokesman.
