We are only limited to visual inspections for vehicles entering the Naia complex. Be that as it may, we have beefed up our security deployment to ensure the safety of everyone, though it means longer queues for departing passengers.–Chief Supt. Christopher Laxa, director of the Philippine National Police – Aviation Security Group following Monday’s arrest of four men allegedly plotting to bomb the airport

A foiled plot to bomb the country’s main airport and a huge mall in Metro Manila was to have been the “opening salvo” of a group supposedly opposed to China’s occupation of disputed isles in the South China Sea claimed by China.
Philippine police say a powerful bomb has been defused outside the main police station in a southern city that has come under attack from Muslim rebels in the past.
