I was caught in the middle of a gunfight that lasted hours in Tugaya, Lanao del Sur while covering the country���s first-ever automated elections. I don’t know if being ‘caught in the middle’ is a correct description because I was there as a journalist and had prior knowledge that that town is a poll hotspot. But I use it nonetheless because I did not want the gunfight to happen, much less witness it up close.
