Two teachers assigned to a village in Davao City have stopped going to work out of fear of the New People’s Army in the area, the commander of the 69th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army says.

 

Anthony Allada of the Philippine News Agency reports via InterAksyon.com that "the teacher’s move came after 17 families were evacuated from their houses in Purok 26, Sitio Alon, to Sitio Malikongkong in November 6, and since then stayed away from the area due to sightings of NPA rebels in the place." The report also quotes Lt.Col. Inocencio Pasaporte, commander of the 69th IB, as saying elementary school students also had to leave their homes.

 

Pasaporte said "’merong mga elementary students at lalong nakapasaklap dyan ay pati na yung mga guro dun sa school nay yun na may Grade I and II classrooms ay hindi na rin nag-rereport sa trabaho nila kasi natatakot na rin (There were elementary students but what is sad to note is that even teachers in that school with two Grades, I and II, have also failed to report for work due to fear).’"
