Philippines to go on offensive against MILF

Following the latest Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) attacks that left dozens dead the Philippines have sent extra troops into southern Philippines and have pledged "aggressive action" against the MILF. Towns in Lanao del Norte were attacked by MILF rebels said to be led by a renegrade commander yesterday and that the attacks were not sanctioned by the MILF leadership. This was dismissed by the armed forces chief General Alexander Yano saying it was their usual line.
