Two NPA rebels surrender to Nolcom

Two members of the New People's Army surrendered to the Armed Forces of the Philippines' Northern Luzon Command (Nolcom) on Thursday.

According to the Nolcom, the two NPAs whose names were not identified belonged to the Kilusang Larangang Gerilya (KLG) "AMPIS" of the Ilocos-Cordillera Regional Committee. One of them is the squad leader.

The surrender occurred at 10 a.m. in Baguio City.

Both surrenderees yielded without firearms.

The surrender was made possible after negotiations were done by two former rebels through the joint efforts of the AFP's 77th Infantry Battalion and 54th Infantry Battalion, Ifugao Provincial Police Offices, and Mt. Province PPO. —KG, GMA News
