The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) stopped two passengers whose luggage yielded guns.

A passenger bound for Incheon, South Korea was found carrying a .22-caliber pistol, six pieces of ammunition, and one magazine.

These items were detected during initial screening at NAIA Terminal 1. Authorities intercepted these from a certain Leandro Gatdula.

In the afternoon, another incident was reported at NAIA Terminal 2. Passenger Jason Tobias was supposed to check in for his flight to Dubai. However, the X-ray monitor showed his luggage had a revolver inside.

The revolver was confiscated from Tobias. 

Both Gatdula and Tobias were apprehended for violation of RA 10591, or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act.

Since July 2016, NAIA authorities have been allowing passengers carrying ammunition to take their flights after surrendering it to them.

Such move aimed to end the "tanim bala" scam at the airport.
