TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines  â€“ Communist rebels torched heavy equipment worth about P500,000, bunkhouses and a generator set in a black sand quarrying site in Camalaniugan, Cagayan last Saturday, authorities said.

The attack was a reprisal against the management of Well Resource Mining Corp. for refusing to pay “revolutionary taxes” to the insurgents, police said.

The rebels, belonging to the New People’s Army’s Danilo Bien Command, also disarmed two security guards before fleeing.
