Photo: US Military Plane Flies Over Southern Philippines

A US military cargo plane flies Thursday, January 23, 2008 over Zamboanga City in southern Philippines, where American and Filipino troops are to begin a new joint military training next month. Thousands of Muslims and militant groups are opposing the presence of US troops in Mindanao and Sulu Archipelago. Last month, US troops forcibly ordered the nightly closure of a government hospital in Sulu's Panamao town for fear that rebels would target their camp near the hospital.
