BACOLOD CITY – City officials said that they are investigating the proliferation through cellphone of images of several naked young girls.

Officials of the Sangguniang Panlunsod said they received images of 10 young girls naked.

The age of the girls in the images reportedly ranged from 12 to 16 years old.

An informant reportedly gave Mario Amaca, Negros Occidental High School principal, a copy of the images.

Amaca said he was alarmed after the informant said that some of the girls in the images were students in his school. This was however not yet confirmed, he said.

Amaca said that should the information be confirmed however, he would call the parents of the girls to learn who could have been responsible for the taking of the “obscene” images.

City Councilor Greg Gasataya meanwhile said that he would ask the departments of education and social welfare and development to investigate the proliferation of the images. From a report of Romeo Subaldo, ABS-CBN News Negros
