CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga, Philippines — Suspected New People’s Army rebels fired at Army soldiers securing the passage of Senator Edgardo Angara in Dinalungan, Aurora, at past 1 p.m. on Saturday, police and military officials confirmed to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, parent company of INQUIRER.net.
Reached through his mobile phone by the Inquirer newspaper, Angara said there was â€œno more danger to my life.â€
But in an interview with INQUIRER.net at around 3 p.m., Angara said that neither he nor his security was ambushed. â€œThatâ€™s a complete lie. Kalokohan yan (Thatâ€™s not true),â€ he said.
The senator, who was in the area to launch several agriculture projects, said he was very far away from where the fighting happened. â€œItâ€™s like the fighting happened in Basilan and I was in Manila,â€ he said.
