  • 2. TOP 5 In a hard-hitting report, the United Nations children's rights watchdog asked the Vatican to remove all child sexual abusers from their posts and turn them over to the police. The committee said that the Roman Catholic Church was still failing to do enough to live up to its stated commitment to stamp out child abuse by priests and lay employees, including in schools. It blasted the practice of transferring child abusers from parish to parish within countries, and even across borders. The Vatican said it would study the matter but slammed criticism of its religious teachings as "interference." UN tells Vatican: Remove child abusers from ranks
  • 3. TOP 4 President Benigno Aquino III reiterated his stand against apologizing to Hong Kong over a 2010 hostage crisis in Manila that led to the death of 8 Hong Kong tourists. In his first public response to Hong Kong's "first phase of sanctions" against the Philippines, Aquino told the New York Times February 5 that an apology could create a legal liability, adding China has not paid compensation to the families of Filipino victims who died in the mainland. The article was released on the same day Hong Kong's sanction on visa-free entry for Philippine government officials and diplomats took place.The Philippines' foreign affairs department issued a separate statement saying Manila has done "everything possible" to resolve the issue. No apology to Hong Kong Aquino
  • 4. TOP 3 With tensions already high over Beijing's imposition of an air zone above islands administered by Japan in the East China Sea, the United States on February 5 urged Beijing to clarify or adjust its claims in the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea), calling for a peaceful solution to one of Asia's growing flash points. Danny Russel, the US assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, challenged Beijing's so-called "nine-dash line" that outlines its territorial claims over much of the disputed islands, supporting the Philippine government's decision to take its case to a United Nations tribunal. The statement comes a day after Philippine President Benigno Aquino III appealed for international support against China over its territorial dispute with the Asian giant. Clarify South China Sea claim, US asks China

  • 6. TOP 1 As the word war escalates anew between Manila and Beijing, President Benigno Aquino III said his administration and the United States are close to arriving at a military-to-military agreement that would allow the increased presence of American troops in the country and give them more access to military bases here. Negotiations resumed last week after an impasse last year. The President told the New York Times both sides were on their way to sealing the long-delayed deal. The Philippine panel earlier opposed an American condition that limits Filipino troops' access to temporary facilities that US troops will be building once the access deal is signed. PH set to sign military deal with US
