11 killed in Philippine army clash with rebels

The Philippine military says six soldiers and five communist rebels have been killed in a clash in a northern province. Army spokesperson Col. Cirilito Sobejana says the soldiers were on a counter-insurgency operation on Saturday in Isabela province’s San Guillermo township when they ran into 30 New People’s Army guerrillas. Nine soldiers and eight guerrillas were wounded. Manila’s DZMM radio station quoted a rebel spokesman saying they gave first aid to the wounded soldiers before escaping.
