CAFGU wife seriously hurt by shrapnel fired by NPA

LEGAZPI CITY—A 43-year-old wife of a member of the Citizens Armed Forces and Geographical Unit (CAFGU) is now in critical condition after she was hit by a grenade shrapnel coming from an M203 grenade launcher lodged by New People's Army (NPA) rebels who attacked a camp of the Philippine Army/Citizens Armed Auxiliary at Barangay Mabini, Del Gallego, Camarines Sur, Monday morning.

Rushed to the Bicol Medical Center was Marissa Corpuz, a resident of the village.

A police report said Corpuz was preparing breakfast for her husband inside a hut in the camp at about 6:05 a.m. when suddenly there was an explosion and a shrapnel from an M-203 grenade hit her.

The CAFGU detachment was 50 meters away from the unit’s main camp.

The soldiers immediately fought back to defend their camp and exchanged fire with the rebels for 20 minutes, after which the rebels withdrew towards an unknown direction.

The report said Corpuz was just visiting her CAFGU-husband when the rebels harassed the detachment.(PNA)
