Publish Date: Monday, November 11, 2013 | 3:37 AM

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) on Sunday announced that about 25, 000 relief goods meant for evacuees affected by typhoon ‘Yolanda’ were mobbed by unidentified men in Tanauan, Leyte.

PRC chairman Richard Gordon said in media reports that the truck which carried the relief goods was about to cross the Tanauan Bridge in Leyte when it was attacked.

He added that the relief goods could have fed up to 5, 000 families.

“It is hard to call the PNP (Philippine National Police), nobody’s answering,” Gordon said since communication lines in some areas in Leyte were down since Saturday.

Gordon said that the relief goods came all the way from Davao and travelled by ship to only unfortunately be “attacked unnecessarily”.

He called on the police to arrest the mobsters immediately. Philippine News Agency (PNA)
