“Ang sabi po ng barangay at ng aming kapulisan, Chinese character po iyon. Sa amin lang po, parang rocket iyong napagtanto namin dito sa nakakakita pero wala namang expert na nagsabi na talagang rocket or Chinese character iyon,” he told over the phone.

(Our village heads and police said these were Chinese characters. Those who saw the debris believe these may be from a rocket but no experts have concluded that these were from a rocket or that these were Chinese characters.)
