Duterte wants martial law extended one more year


For those of you living in Mindanao, have you found the martial law to be an inconvenience?

President Rodrigo Duterte is seeking a one-year extension of martial law in Mindanao as government forces continue to track down terrorists who survived the Marawi crisis.
Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea said a letter requesting the extension of the military rule on the island would be transmitted on Monday to Congress.
