President plans rebel airstrikes

PHILIPPINE President Rodrigo Duterte has warned the military will launch airstrikes if communist rebels instigate new attacks. Peace talks broke down when New People's Army rebels killed six soldiers and kidnapped two others. "With my lifting of the ceasefire, they can begin their attacks and we are prepared and I will use the assets. We have so many planes now ... I will drop all (the bombs),” he said. Despite his threats, he has offered the guerillas land reform and housing if they abandon their rebellion.
