Three government soldiers were killed while two others were injured when they were waylaid by leftist rebels in eastern Philippine province of Camarines Sur, a military spokesman said Thursday.

Maj. Chris Morales, spokesman of the 10th Infantry Division of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), said the soldiers, on their way to a marketing duty, were attacked by at least 10 rebels of the Communist Party of the Philippines on Wednesday afternoon in Ragay town.

Quoting survivors, Morales said one of the slain soldiers had already raised his hands as a sign he was already surrendering but the rebels still shot him. Another soldier, he also said, was shot dead by the rebels as he was retreating.

Morales said they are preparing criminal charges against the ambush perpetrators, who had been identified, before the courts while military intelligence personnel are exerting efforts to find their whereabouts.

Leftist rebels clashed with government troops as they tried to raid a military patrol office in southern Bukidnon province on Tuesday, leaving 17 people dead and three wounded.

The around 5,000-member NPA is the armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines, which has been waging a guerrilla war against the administration since its founding in 1969 by leftist idealists.
