A breakaway Muslim rebel group killed nine civilians in the southern Philippines in a series of attacks on Christmas eve in Manila, Philippines.
What the actual story is?
Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters, a group that opposed to a peace deal between government and the mainstream Muslim rebel group has attacked on farmers and killed seven. Farmers were working in their rice paddies. Two other civilians were killed in a grenade attack on a chapel in nearby North Cotabato province. The rebels had also taken civilian hostage in the Sultan Kudarat attack and used them as human shields when soldiers pursued them, but the hostages were later freed.
