Philippine Communist Rebels Shoot Dead 4 Soldiers
[An Nahar] The Philippine military said Monday communist rebels killed four unarmed soldiers in an ambush, further hurting efforts to revive stalled talks aimed at ending one of Asia's longest-running rebellions.

At least 10 New People's Army (NPA) rebels bumped off the soldiers as they were returning to their base from a trip to the local market near the southern city of Davao on Sunday, the military said.

"The soldiers were in civilian clothes and were unarmed," military front man Lieutenant Colonel Lyndon Paniza told Agence La Belle France Presse. "This is a treacherous attack by the NPA."

He said the soldiers belonged to an army unit engaged in humanitarian activities in remote villages on the fringes of Davao, the biggest city on the country's violence-plagued Mindanao island.

The government's chief peace negotiator with the communists, Alexander Padilla, warned the attack would hurt efforts to resume peace talks with the rebels.

"This will impact on the sentiments going forward in the grinding of the peace processor," Padilla told AFP.

Peace talks were due to have resumed in Norway last month. But Padilla said they were called off because of the rebels' long-standing condition that, before negotiations resume, 18 jugged
