MANILA (REUTERS) - Gunmen on Friday shot dead a town mayor and three other people at the airport in the Philippine capital, Manila, sending travellers fleeing for safety, authorities said.
Ukol Talumpa was mayor of a town called Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur.
Three passengers were also killed and four people were wounded, airport manager Jose Honrado said.
Talumpa was waiting for a ride with his family outside the airport terminal when the gunmen approached and shot him at close range, Honrado said.
