Husband of massacre victim to name new pups 'Unsay and Andal'

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – Buluan, Maguindanao Vice Mayor Esmael Mangudadatu, whose wife was one of the 57 people killed in Maguindanao massacre last month, plans to get back at his tormentors by naming his new pups after them.

Mangudadatu said his Belgian Malinois, which is due to give birth anytime, will name the male pups Unsay and Andal Senior.

"If my Belgian Malinois gives birth to male pups, I’ll name one Unsay and the other Andal Senior," Mangudadatu said in an interview on dzBB radio.

Mangudadatu lost his wife Genalyn and several of his political supporters in the November 23 massacre. At least 30 journalists were also killed in the incident.

Unsay is the nickname of Datu Unsay town Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr., the primary suspect in the massacre of 57 people in Ampatuan town. He is now detained at the National Bureau of Investigation in Manila.

On the other hand, Andal Sr. is the patriarch of the Ampatuan clan, bitter rival of the Mangudadatu clan in Maguindanao. (Nonoy Lacson)
