    China razes mosque to build toilets, why Al-Jazeera not showing it?🤔

    • anthony patterson says:

      yeah i’m sure a middle eastern arabic based news network is hiding offenses against mosques. you might have noticed this was about an earthquake that razed more than mosques. Besides, you clearly know and found out about it some way, why do they talk about it for you again?

    Pray for The Philippines 🇵🇭🇮🇩

    • K- Studio says:

      Terima kasih🙏

    • Samantha says:

      @K- Studio You know what, about two hours ago there were 2 earthquakes (magnitude 6.8 and magnitude 6.9) happened less than 10 minutes apart from each other to the southwest of Bengkulu, Sumatra, Indonesia. Luckily there was no serious damage reported. Indo and Filipino are so alike. Hopefully the mother earth will be better soon.

    • K- Studio says:

      @Samantha we’ll pray for you too brother. Last week I heard there was a volcano erupted in Indonesia

    • Samantha says:

      @K- Studio Thank you, yes it was Mt. Sinabung, in Sumatra Island as well. Apparently earthquakes and volcano eruptions are part of our daily life as our country lies in the ring of fire. We’re used to it all, but hopefully the damage and casualties aren’t so bad.

  • Francis C says:

    Anchor pronounced everything correctly, from province name to reporter’s last name. 👍👍

    • Jane EXO-L says:

      I think she’s a Filipina😊

    • Francis C says:

      @Jane EXO-L She’s the reporter, not the anchor. I was talking about the anchor, who’s a white guy. Bye, Felicia. 🙂

    • Jane EXO-L says:

      @Francis C oh I’m really sorry. Thank you for correcting me😊

  • youtube monitor says:

    The Philippines was curse by the Spaniards and negativity is causing the disaster

  • Thirdy Legada says:

    Earthquake was common in Philippines, the house was old so it collapsed easily

    • Courageous Teen says:

      and the fact that most of the houses in provinces are being built without consulting engineer and architect.

    whoa,God bless the maharlicans.

  • Yeoh Kok Leong says:

    Over populated nations like the Philippines & Indonesia should consider letting children to be adopted by childless parents outside their countries in order to lessen the social economic burden of governments. It’s even more so when places are prone to natural calamities.

    • RM Alfaro says:

      The earthquake affected only Masbate, just one of the 7,641 islands of the Philippines! Only the town of Cataingan in Masbate was severely damaged but the rest of the province is fortunately doing fine. There was only 1 person who died because of heart attack so please don’t be too overdramatic. Earthquake has nothing to do with overpopulation and Filipino children are not for sale! People who want to adopt should go through legal and proper channels for adoption. Human trafficking is illegal in the Philippines just so you know!

    Why not any equation for earth quack ???
    Use quantum physics and time dialation and crust mass contraction according to relative frequency so we got actual formula for an earthquake
    Whole world scientists are invited to discuss it with me
