Two soldiers were injured when government forces attacked a communist New People’s Army base in a remote village in Camarines Sur province on Sunday.

A firefight, lasting about one and a half hours, broke out between an army patrol and rebels after the soldiers stumbled upon the base at Sitio Palale in Exciban village, a military spokesman said on Monday.  The rebel fighters later fled.

An unknown number of rebels were killed or wounded and bloodstains were found at the scene.
