A salute for the fallen

Honor guards on Tuesday salute as Arrival Honors are given in Villamor Airbase in Pasay City to the remains of three of four soldiers who were killed by members of the Philippine National Police at a checkpoint in Jolo, Sulu on Monday. Police claim the soldiers, who were not in uniform, sped past the checkpoint and drew their guns, prompting the shooting.

On April 21, former Army officer Winston Ragos was fatally shot by a policeman at a quarantine checkpoint in Quezon City.
