MANILA - The report of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on the Atimonan incident where 13 people died is now with President Benigno Aquino III.

Radio dzMM’s Junry Hidalgo said the report further bolsters earlier news that the 13 who died in the incident were victims of an ambush, not a shootout.

The Philippine National Police also came out with the same findings days ago.

“There was no shootout…Instead there was excessive use of force, and 13 men in a two-vehicle convoy drove into an ambush by a joint police-military contingent in Atimonan, Quezon last Jan. 6,” The Philippine Star reported on Monday.
