    Post Carnage in Lanao Del Norte: A Survivor's Account


    33 civilians were left down on the ground dead: 18 in Kauswagan, 11 in nearby Kolambugan and four in Maigo towns in Lanao del Norte, killed by an alleged rogue rebel command of the MILF.

    The leader of this alleged rogue MILF command, Kumander Bravo, declares an all-out-war against the Philippine government. He and his mujahadeen or holy soldiers will fight to death, "If they [Philippine government] cannot finish us, we will finish them"

    Just today I stumbled on an article based on a survivor's account in Kolambugan, interviewed by Christine Herrera of the Manila Standard Today.

    ‘They were laughing while firing’

    “THEY were savages,” 16-year-old Legend Rivera said.

    “They were very young—about my age—but fearless. They looked like demons and seemed ready to kill Christians. I almost went crazy.”

    Rivera was recounting her ordeal in Kolambugan town, Lanao del Norte, when fighters of the separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front laid siege to it and caused the death of 39 people. She told it between sobs by cellular phone in Ozamis City, where she had finally escaped after going through hell for 11 hours.

    And we'd thought that these things can only been seen in movies. Let's all pray and hope for peace especially in that area. This is not getting good.

    i think the government should consider the words uttered by Com. Bravo to end it...
