Zamboanga Bus Terror

ZAMBOANGA, Philippines - Gunmen killed an army officer, his wife and an armed guard and set fire to their bodies in a brutal bus ambush in the Philippines' strife-torn south, the military said Wednesday.
Extortionists are believed to be behind the atrocity late Tuesday, the latest in a series of attacks on buses plying the roads of Mindanao island, said local military official Colonel Buenaventura Pascual.
"We have launched a combined military and police operation to get these people who have been conducting extortion in the highway," said Pascual, head of a local counter-terrorist task force.
Four armed men who had posed as passengers flagged down the bus along a stretch of highway but shot two armed security men who had been hired to provide security aboard the bus, the military said.
