Communist guerrillas attacked a dozen mostly rural army outposts, including in two provinces where officials have declared that the insurgents have been considerably weakened, the military said Tuesday.

New People’s Army guerrillas fired on 11 army outposts and a police station on Monday in the northeastern provinces of Albay, Camarines Norte and Sorsogon, sparking a clash that killed one of the insurgents, regional military spokesman Maj. Angelo Guzman said.

A police officer, a government militiaman and six villagers were wounded in the attacks.

Authorities have declared that the decades-long insurgency has been considerably weakened in recent months in Albay and Camarines Norte, allowing civilian officials to take charge of the anti-insurgency program from the military.
