When MILF's attack

Philippines Attacks Muslim Rebels In South

"The government had given some 800 Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) guerrillas a 24-hour deadline on Thursday to withdraw from villages in North Cotabato province but most defied the government order.
We are only taking actions against the breakaway MILF group that defied the orders of the ceasefire panels," said Major-General Raymundo Ferrer, a division commander in the area.
A spokesman for the MILF, which is supposed to be observing a ceasefire, said they did not start the fighting."- NY Times
