Malate demolition

A child plays by a creek as personnel of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources demolish houses during clearing operations at the stretch of Estero de San Antonio Abad in Malate, Manila on Friday. Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu, as part of the Manila Bay cleanup efforts, appealed to informal settlers living along waterways to move to the relocation site provided by the government in Caloocan City. Some residents say they might stay behind and rent rooms to be able to retain their current jobs in the area.
