Philippine journalism’s worst tragedy

The victims in Maguindanao Massacre included at least 12 journalists. This is according to the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP).

NUJP officer Rowena Paraan said this is the worst single tragedy to hit Philippine journalism. “Not even in Iraq has there ever been this many dead journalists in one incident. And this one was deliberate,” she stressed. The Philippines has long been regarded as among the deadliest countries for journalists.

Paraan identified some of the victims as Bart Maravilla of Bombo Radyo-Koronadal, Henry Araneta of DZRH-Cotabato, Bong Reblando of the Manila Bulletin, and Neneng Montano of radio station DXCP.

Reports from NUJP chapters in Mindanao also listed the following media persons, whose affiliations were not immediately available, as among the victims: Ian Toblan, Leah Dalmacio, Gina dela Cruz, Marites Cabutas, Joy Duhay, Andy Teodoro, Mac-Mac Areola, and Jimmy Cabillo.
