Army assists in arrest
of massacre suspect

The police engaged the help of soldiers in the arrest of one of the suspects in the Maguindanao Massacre Saturday in Midsayap town, North Cotabato.

Negrense Col. Ademar Tomaro, 602nd Infantry Brigade commander, yesterday said the combined teams of police personnel assigned at Midsayap and Pikit towns, and operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, used his troops in arresting Bong Andal, the alleged operator of the backhoe that was used in digging the common graves for the 58 people, including 32 journalists, who were massacred in Maguindanao on Nov. 23, 2009.

Tomaro said the PNP coordinated with them in the arrest of Andal. “We only played a supporting role, the policemen were the major participants in the operation,” he said.

The exams were being taken by would-be officers applying to enter the force as well as serving officers seeking promotion.

Pinoy cardinal potential candidate

Tagle was one of the six new cardinals named by Benedict XVI to the elite club of churchmen who will elect the next pope.

“The Filipino archbishop has become a potential candidate for the papacy but 52 percent of electing cardinals are still European,” Tornielli said. Cardinal Tagle, at 55, is “an emerging figure in the Asian Episcopate and a potential future Pope...”
