US Embassy advises citizens of checkpoints in Metro Manila
The United States Embassy in Manila on Sunday issued an advisory to its citizens, saying the Philippine government has placed the entire Philippine National Police on full alert throughout Metro Manila.
The security message issued tells its citizens of possible checkpoints in the National Capital Region.
“The PNP advises that this is a precautionary measure in light of the declaration of martial law in Mindanao and not related to any specified terror threat information directed towards Metro Manila,” the embassy said.
A unit of the Armed Forces of the Philippines has been reportedly deployed to Quezon City to assist the PNP with the security operations.
This unit will assist in implementing random checkpoints, security patrols and police visibility operations.
“A unit of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has been deployed to Quezon City to assist the PNP with security operations,” the advisory said.
