MANILA, Philippines – An Army major allegedly assaulted a journalist in Camarines Sur province who had requested soldiers who were blocking a road while doing their exercises to give way to traffic, the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines reported Thursday.

An alert issued by the media organization said Arnel Eclarinal, a news producer for GMA TV7-Naga was on a motorcycle with a cousin when they came across troops of the 9th Infantry Division who were occupying both lanes of the road while jogging in Barangay Caroyroyan, Pili town.
