PNP: No terror threat yet following Paris, Mali attacks

THE Philippine National Police (PNP) said Tuesday it has not monitored any terror threat following the deadly attacks in Paris and Mali that killed close to 200 people.

PNP Chief Director General Ricardo Marquez urged the public to keep calm despite “scare messages” on possible terror attack, particularly in crowded areas in Metro Manila like malls.

He said authorities cannot stop the public shoppers from going to the malls, especially that the Yuletide season is fast approaching, but they are closely coordinating with the mall management for the public's safety.

“For this Christmas season, ‘yun ang magiging focus ng NCRPO (National Capital Region Police Office) tsaka ng mga police units kung saan ang mga area nila may malalaking malls,” said Marquez.

Aside from malls, the PNP will also monitor other places of convergence, such as train stations, public markets, bus terminals, seaports, airports and other vital installations in the country. (Sunnex)
