COTABATO CITY (Sept. 15/NDBC)
– Two Moro peasants were
seriously wounded on Sunday in a crossfire involving two heavily armed ethnic
Iranon groups fighting for control of patches of lands in Buldon town in the
province.

In a statement Monday, the
Buldon municipal police identified the victims as Munir Renghis, 32, and Akmad
Abug, 28, who sustained gunshot wounds in different parts of their bodies.

The victims were plowing
their lands in Barangay Pulayakan in north of Buldon when members of two feuding
Moro clans arrived and immediately traded shots using M14 and M16 assault
rifles.

Renghis and Abug were hit by
stray bullets even before they could run away.

The two groups scampered
away after sensing that responding local officials and policemen were closing
in.

Investigators declined to
identify, meantime, the clans that figured in the encounter pending the
amicable settlement of the conflict.

The wounded farmers were
rushed by barangay officials to a hospital for medication.

Buldon, a predominantly
Iranon area, and its neighboring Parang, Barira and Matanog towns, also in
Maguindanao, accounts for most of still unresolved clan wars in the province.

Chief Supt. Noel Delos
Reyes, regional police director of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao,
said emissaries are now trying to convince the two clans that clashed in
Barangay Pulayakan to reconcile before local clerics and traditional Moro
leaders.
