Bishop demands probe into killing of Philippine farmers

MANILA (UCAN): “We demand a quick investigation into this and appeal to the authorities to restore peace and order,” Bishop Gerardo Alminaza of San Carlos, Negros Oriental, the Philippines, said as he demanded an investigation into the killings of 14 farmers, one of whom was reportedly a Church worker, during three police operations in the central Philippine province on March 30.
 
The bishop said that the victims lived in one of diocese’s mission stations on the outskirts of the city of Canlaon where eight men were killed.
