City police chief Danilo Bautista said the bodies of Albert Mitchell, his wife, and three others were found with gunshot wounds inside Mitchell's home in a subdivision in Angeles city, near the former U.S.-run Clark Air Force Base some 80 kilometers (50 miles) northwest of Manila. The victims' faces were covered with cloth.
The other victims were two maids and an unidentified man, all Filipinos.
Any comments? What is your experience with criminality in Philippines?
I am visiting usually only Cebu, and I did not have problems so far, but I try to be away from the street past 9 PM.
It's getting rather dark, and all shopping malls and most shops are closed past 9 PM.
I always book a hotel room near the Osmena Circle, and never stay overnight in the house of my Filipina fostergirl out in Mandaue.
It seems to be OK during daytime, but there are many reports about criminality during nighttime.
