Philippine Civil War Threatens to Spread
There is an active civil war in the Philippines! It is contained pretty much to a small part of the country, in the extreme southern tip of the Philippines. It would appear that the Philippine government has done a very good job of containing it.
There was a bomb threat for two courts in Metro Cebu this week and the Philippine police responded by stepping up security at those location. The police felt the threats were baseless but they were going to take no chances. The police reported that the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) where responsible for the threats.
