    It's a simple "UBUSAN NG LAHI" sa mga Muslim clans pag nag-aaway.

    Quite frightening that such a thing can still happen in this day and age. I doubt any justice will be given though. Madadaan lang iyan through political patronage since the alledged leader is a known ally of GMA. Ma-forget na ito by next year like everthing else in this country...

    Datu Andal Ampatuan has been elected governor of Maguindanao three times previously, always unopposed, although he resigned earlier this year, apparently to circumvent term limits on elected officials.

    Of the 22 mayors in his province, most are sons, grandsons or other relatives.

    Two of Ampatuan’s sons have been killed in violence linked to clan wars.

    Ampatuan has told reporters that people did not run against him or his family members in elections because they had little chance of winning.

    “It’s because of popular support,” he said. “Because I am so loved by the constituencies of the municipalities, they ask me to have my sons as representatives.”

    Ms Arroyo has called Ampatuan a valuable ally in the past. In the 2004 presidential elections, she won most of the votes in Maguindanao. In one town, her rivals did not get even a single vote.

    It might be "simple" to them but to a lot of people, it ain't.

    perhaps this is why they want mindanao as an autonomous state. . .

    Listening to the radio, the goverment officials there doesn't want to touch the case, especially the police. Apparently the place is a hot potato, even GMA doesn't want to categorically condemn the Ampatuan.

    In Maguindanao, no one dares cross the Ampatuans

    I heard about this yesterday- over the radio and the internet. Just waiting somebody to post here.

    This massacare dwarfed the record of Marcos-era "killings". Barbaric and uncivilized (muslim) people.

    And I doubt the military (AFP or Alms Forces) can handle this.
