ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — Police are working to determine who hoisted the flag of the communist National Democratic Front of the Philippines in a state college in Zamboanga City early this week.

Superintendent Ariel Huesca said the NDFP flag was placed at the gate of the Zamboanga City State Polytechnic College and was discovered Monday by security guard Johnsen Daniel as he patrolled the campus.

The gate is at Lot 2, facing the Western Mindanao State University, where a forum on constitutional reforms, one of the agenda of peace negotiations between the government and communist rebels, was conducted Monday afternoon.

Huesca said Daniel removed the flag and turned it over to the school.
