(UPDATED) Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Thursday attended the funeral of a fish vendor killed by the New People’s Army (NPA).

In her Instagram post, Duterte mourned for Buenafe and denounced communist rebels.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte mourns for Larry Buenafe as she attended his funeral on Thursday.

Buenafe died on May 4 after he was injured by a landmine detonated during the NPA’s attack on the Lapanday Foods Corporation last April 29. 

NPAs attacked the Lorenzo family-owned factories as a "punitive action" against the Lorenzos for what the rebels claimed were their "numerous crimes against agricultural workers, peasants and Lumad."
