and out, there will be interesting to see, once this is over, people will want to know how many of the group who got involved in this attack, this hardline militant group, how many of them managed to escape than once that is done, there are bigger questions that the filmic —— the government has to answer. one is how this terrible battle that has caused so much damage was allowed to ta ke caused so much damage was allowed to take place. it was supposed to be a routine operation to detain, opportunistically, they had only just found them there, perhaps the most notorious leader operating in the philippines, a commander who has joined this group, in that operation, they encountered much bigger resistance than they thought. the military is now saying that they think there was a plan by the group to ta ke think there was a plan by the group to take over the city and that they happen to pre—empt it. that may be true but it has been a very destructive operation and the bigger question is what do they do now to reassure the philippines public that

12:04 am
groups in neighbouring countries, many people who have been to the middle east and been radicalised there. this is a long—standing problem and it is not clear that this hardline approach of using the military is really going to solve everything. people will be asking, the group has carried out this rate, can he be sure it will not do it ain? can he be sure it will not do it again? they will be looking to some fresh and convincing ideas from the president to show that he can make better progress that his predecessors did. jonathan had reporting. let us look at some of the other news. it has emerged that tiger woods was arrested on a drink—driving charge in florida early on monday morning. the 1a time major winner has struggled through injuries and recent years and was forced to pull out of the masters in april. he has yet to make any formal comment. our correspondent gave maw. in that mug shot that was released by the authorities within hours of being taken into custody in the
