Kidnaped California oil executive Michael L. Barnes was rescued by Philippine police commandos Wednesday after a dramatic series of bloody raids across Manila that left up to 14 people dead. Barnes was unharmed despite a tense shootout in the suburban Las Pinas bungalow where he had been kept chained to a bed, frequently blindfolded, by suspected Communist guerrillas for the last 61 days.
