MANILA, Philippines?The US embassy in Manila on Friday condemned the killing of Suwaib Upham who "bravely came forward to testify about the tragic Maguindanao massacre."

In a statement, US Ambassador to the Philippines Harry Thomas Jr. said "this murder adds to the need for swift investigation and prosecution of those responsible for the brutal massacre of (57) people in Maguindanao" in November.

"Too many families still await justice and now the Upham family joins them," said Thomas as he also urged the authorities to "conduct a swift investigation into Upham's death and bring those responsible to justice."

They envoy assured Washington would "continue to support the Philippine government's efforts to build capacity to investigate and prosecute such crimes."
