TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan – Six Army soldiers were wounded when a landmine believed planted by New People’s Army rebels exploded in Barangay Sangbay, Nagtipunan, Quirino Tuesday morning.

“The wounded troops were brought to the Diduyon District Hospital for initial treatment. Three were declared out of danger while three others were transferred to the Cabaroquis Hospital for further treatment,” said Capt. Jefferson Somera, spokesman for the 5th Infantry Division (ID) based in Gamu, Isabela.
