Philippines calls for terror warnings to be downgraded

Philippines urged the US and other nations to downgrade travel warnings about an imminent terrorist attack in Manila stating it had not monitored any such threat (AP, 04-Nov-2010). The US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand issued travel advisories this week warning an attack may occur at any time in the Philippines' capital, and that areas frequented by foreigners were potential targets. Philippine Airlines assured passengers it has “heightened” security amid the travel advisories (GMANews.TV, 04-Nov-2010).
