This one from ABS-CBN news:
MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) One of the Philippines’ top botanists was killed when he was allegedly caught in a crossfire between government troops and leftist rebels.
Leonardo L. Co was gathering seedlings of endangered trees in a forest in Leyte, when he was tragically caught in a crossfire during an encounter between the military and suspected communist rebels last Monday, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).
Co was killed together with Sofronio G. Cortez, a forest guard of the Energy Development Corporation (EDC), and Julius Borromeo, a local farmer who was the group’s guide.
Co was in the area collecting specimens for a reforestation project for the Lopez-owned EDC, which hired him as consultant.
