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."
