Police have identified 12 members of the New People's Army (NPA) rebel group allegedly involved in the killing of four policemen in Ayungon, Negros Oriental in July. 

The Central Visayas Police Office said that out of the 12 suspects, 4 were already arrested. 

Danny Tancinco and Ronnie Herebias were caught last July 31 at Badian, Cebu while Jojo Ogatis and Oto Anadon were caught last August 3 at Mabato, Ayungon, police said.

Eight other suspects remain at large. 

Police said they are now working on the facial composites of the suspects so the public could help locate the 8 remaining NPA members said to be responsible for the torture and death of the four policemen. 

The suspects are supposed spotters and the lookouts for the NPA.
