Mayor killed in Manila airport ambush

MANILA - Four people including the mayor of a southern Philippine town were killed Friday in an ambush at Manila airport, its general manager said.

"The mayor and his family and some security escorts were attacked," Manila airport general manager Angel Honrado told reporters, adding one of the dead was the mayor of Labangan town.

Ukol Talumpa, a member of the political opposition, won a hotly contested electoral contest for mayor of Labangan in last May's elections.
