Philippines: Communist guerrillas kill fighter

Communist guerrillas attacked a pro-government armed group outpost in a remote northern Philippine mountain province, killing one fighter and briefly holding several villagers as they were being chased by troops, an army general said Sunday. About 70 New People's Army guerrillas opened fire on the outpost near Pinukpuk township in Kalinga province, sparking a three-hour clash. A soldier at the outpost was wounded during the clash, he said.
