BATAC, Ilocos Norte – Nagbitiw ng mabibigat na salita sa isang exclusive family gathering ang former First Lady Imelda Marcos laban sa sambayanang Pilipino dahil sa hindi maganda daw na inasal ng mga ito sa pagpapalibing ng dating pangulo Ferdinand Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Ilan sa mga binitiwang mabibigat ay “pison,” “malaking bato,””troso,” “Franklin Drilon,” “sako ng bigas,” at “sama ng loob.”
Ikinagalit ni Ginang Marcos ang mga pagra rally at paninira ng sambayanang Pilipino sa kanilang sikretong pagpapalibing sa kanyang asawa.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Binaril at napatay ang si Zosimo Preltas, pastor ng isang lokal na congregation na naniniwala na hindi tinatablan ng bala ang mga anak ng kanilang diyos na si Apo Diwa, dahil lamang sa pakikipag-palitan niya ng maanghang na salita sa kanyang myembro na kinilala sa pangalan na Nemesio Tirhalio.
Ayon sa mga nakasaksi sa insidente, nag ugat ang alitan sa kanilang diskusyon sa pagpapalibing ni Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Di umano, nakarinig sila ng mga maanghang na salita galing sa dalawa tulad ng “Sili!”, “hot sauce,” “paminta,” at “Bicol express.”
Nag init di umano is Tirhalio at binaril sa bibig si Preltas na agad naman itong ikinamatay.
Sinisiyasat pa ng mga awtoridad kung saan tumakas si Tirhalio.
