Suspected leftist rebels snatched an ailing soldier

Suspected leftist rebels snatched an ailing soldier on his way to a regional army hospital in southern Philippines Tuesday morning, a military official said.

The abduction of Corporal Daiem Hadjaie, a Muslim, happened as the largely Catholic country declared a holiday in deference to the Islamic Festival of Eidl Adha or the Festival of Sacrifices, according to Lieutenant Colonel Gilbert Saret, a local army commander.

Saret said the incident happened at 7 am when about 80 New People's Army rebels conducted a checkpoint in a village road leading to a gold-rich mountain in Monkayo town, in Mindanao's Compostela Valley province.
