Camarines Norte youths light candles for terrorism victims


Militant youths in Bicol marked the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack in the United States by lighting candles for victims of terrorism worldwide.

In Camarines Norte, militant group Kabataan Partylist led the candle-lighting Sunday at the Elevated Plaza, Bicol Today reported.

They said the symbolic action was also in solidarity with the victims of the Sept. 2 bombing that killed at least 14 people in Davao City (

“We are one with the victims of terrorism not only in Davao, but also in other parts of the world. We are also calling to out to our fellow youth to join us in seeking justice for the victims of terrorist attacks. This has to stop,” said Kabataan Camarines Norte coordinator Cyd Andaya.

Militants believe the Davao City blast was the work of the Abu Sayyaf bandit group.

But Andaya said their candle-lighting also seeks to highlight the continuing terrorism in the country.
