MANILA, Jan. 29 — Troopers from the Philippine Army's 17th Infantry Battalion and Kalinga CAFGU Active Auxiliary unearthed a New People's Army (NPA) arms cache in Kungal Capas, Barangay Magnao, Tabuk, Kalinga Tuesday evening.

Recovered were one M-16 automatic rifle, one carbine, a Springfield .303 and one M-1 Garand rifle.

Northern Luzon Command acting spokesperson Major Emmanuel Garcia said the arms cache was discovered at around 10 p.m.

He added that residents gave them the location of the weapons cache.

"This signifies that support for the NPA is already dwindling, if not already gone," Garcia said. (PNA)
