Balangiga Bells ibabalik ng kano Palasyo natuwa

IKINATUWA ng Palasyo ang pahayag ng US Defense Department na planong ibalik ng Ame­rika ang maka­saysayang Balangiga Bells sa Fili­pinas.

“We have been in­formed of the announce­ment by the US Depart­ment of Defense about the Balangiga Bells. We welcome this develop­ment as we look forward to continue working with the United States Govern­ment in paving the way for the return of the bells to the Philippines,” pahayag ni Presidential Spokes­man Harry Roque.

Matatandaan, ipina­babalik ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa mga Amerikano ang tatlong Balangiga Bells na nina­kaw ng US  bilang war booty matapos ipag-utos ni US General Jacob Smith na patayin ang lahat ng kalalakihan, edad 10-anyos pataas sa Samar nang mapaslang ng mga Filipino ang 46 sunda­long Amerikano noong Fil-Am war.

Ang dalawang bells ay nasa US military base sa Cheyenne, Wyoming at ang isa ay nasa mu­seum sa South Ko­rea.
