Another rights advocate murdered in the Phlippines

MANILA (UCAN): “In sadness, we all are crying out: End the killings! These barbaric and calculated assassinations must end! We should not tolerate this kind of crime,” Bishop Gerardo Alminaza of San Carlos, said in the wake of the killing of Bernardino Patigas Sr., a 72-year-old human rights worker.
Patigas was shot dead by a lone gunman in Negros Oriental province on April 22, three weeks after masked policemen gunned down 14 farmers in the same province (Sunday Examiner, April 7).
