Suspected NPA leader held


ARMY soldiers captured a suspected leader of the communist New People’s Army in Catanduanes during an encounter in a hinterland village of Sioron in the coastal town of Gigmoto on Friday, the military said.
Lorenzo Jimenez, alias Enzo, 33, a native of Gigmoto, and five other rebels were cornered after a five-minute firefight with the soldiers belonging to the 83rd Infantry Batallion in Barangay Sioron, 52 kilometers from the capital town of Virac, said Col. Arthur Ang, commanding officer of the 901st Infantry Brigade.
Troops seized an Uzi sub-machinegun from Jimenez while an M-16 rifle was recovered from the battle scene.
