An official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has urged the youth to take up martial arts this summer to defend themselves from criminals.

Father Conegundo Garganta, executive secretary of CBCP’s Episcopal Commission on Youth, issued the advice following a spate of recent rape and robbery cases near the University of the Philippines in Los Baños, Laguna province.

Yesterday, more than 50 policemen, including their chief, were sacked for failure to stop the crimes, the latest of which was the stabbing to death of a student during a robbery last Sunday.
