PH gets surveillance drones from US

A Philippine Air Force officer stands next to a ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, on its launcher, during the turn-over ceremonies of 6 ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicles at the military airbase in Manila on Tuesday. The United States, on March 13, gave the Philippines its first drone system that would help fight militants in the strife-torn south as the allies hailed "strong relations," authorities said.
