SAN ANTONIO, NUEVA ECIJA MAYOR SURVIVES AMBUSH TRY; BODYGUARD HURT
Mayor Arvin Salonga of San Antonio, Nueva Ecija, was unhurt in an ambush try on Tuesday, but his bodyguard was injured.
Salonga and his bodyguard were in his car, traversing a bridge being constructed in the municipality of Jaen when unidentified gunmen fired on the vehicle.

The mayor, however, received a previous threat to his life.
In January 2008, Salonga’s secretary Alexander Santiago Silva was shot dead.
