The safe house is under
Sergio Rodante Ortiz Command, South Samar Committee Sesame, EVRPC.
The explosives are contained in a cylindrical type can, four of
which are estimated to be five kilograms each and the other is
estimated to be two kilograms.
The discovery of
anti-personnel mines saved the lives of the innocent civilians and
their properties. It has been noted that the use of personnel mines
has been banned by the international community. The Communist
Terrorist has proven again that they will do anything to achieve
their selfish desire even if it means endangering innocent civilians
We will not allow any
terroristic acts in sowing fear among the local populace of Calbiga,
