A police officer was killed while seven of his companions were hurt in an explosion in Magpet, North Cotabato on Monday evening.
PO1 Christopher Anadon succumbed to shrapnel wounds from the blast, regional police said.
Superintendent Aldrin Gonzalez, spokesman of Police Regional Office-12, said Tuesday morning that they believe the New People’s Army is behind the attack.
Anadon was among two teams from the North Cotabato Provincial Mobile Force Company whose vehicle was hit by a powerful blast in the town proper of Magpet while returning from a security mission.
