Philippines’ MILF rebel group ‘committed to peace’
The leaders of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) say they are committed to peace negotiations with the government.
Some fighters – including child soldiers – are laying down their weapons in exchange for government benefits. But not all commanders are convinced.
Al Jazeera was granted an exclusive interview with Abdullah Macapaar, known as Commander Bravo who says he will never give up the rebel group’s weapons – not until historical injustices, which he says were committed by the Philippine government, have been corrected.
