Suspected Muslim rebels kill driver of UN World Food Program in Lanao

COTABATO, Philippines (Xinhua) - Suspected Muslim rebels shot and killed a Filipino man who worked for the United Nation's World Food Programme on Saturday in the southern Philippines.

Police said the victim, Bejunson Basnillo, was on his way to deliver some 488 bags of rice to people affected by conflict when they were stopped in the township of Marantao in Lanao del Sur by suspected Moro Islamic Liberation Front rebels.

Basnillo's father, Jerome, told a local radio station that the attackers ordered his son to unload all the bags of rice but he refused.

Accordingly, the perpetrators got mad after the victim told them to ask for their own relief supplies to officials of UN WFP, prompting one of them to shot and killed him.

Chief Superintendent Beinvenido Latag, regional police commander, has ordered pursuit operation against the suspects.
