Rifles seized from communist rebels in Bulacan

MANILA, Philippines—Soldiers from the 56th Infantry Battalion unearthed a cache of high-powered rifles allegedly owned by communist rebels in Doña Remedios Trinidad in Bulacan, a military spokesman said Wednesday.
Major Enrico Ileto of the Philippine Army’s 7th Infantry Division said troops recovered an upper receiver for an M14 rifle, six magazines for M14 rifle, three short and one long magazine for M16 rifle and four pairs of combat boots Tuesday afternoon.
“One would only need a skilled wood carver to build the lower receiver of an M14 rifle and connect it with its upper receiver and operate it just like a normal rifle,” Ileto said.
Meanwhile, Brigadier General Alan Luga, commander of the Army’s 7ID said that soldiers were conducting “further search at the general vicinity for possible discovery of other war materials.”
