Kidapawan City - Communist rebels attacked a banana farm associated with Dole Foods Co. Thursday and a land mine hit a security vehicle rushing to intervene, killing one and wounding three others, the military said.

Village officials and police tried to respond to the pre-dawn plantation attack in southern Makilala in North Cotabato province, but their vehicle hit a mine planted by suspected rebels, said regional military spokesman Maj. Armand Rico.

Authorities identified the perpetrators as members of the Herminio Alfonso Command of Front 52 of the NPA operating in Makilala and other hinterlands areas in North Cotabato.

The attack came two days after President Arroyo visited Makilala town where she was briefed about the situation of the rubber industry in North Cotabato.
