Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives or were injured in last night’s attack in Davao.
We condemn this senseless and criminal act. In this difficult time, we must not allow violence and fear to divide our nation. Rather, let us all come together in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.
We call on calm and collective action in bringing about justice, peace and order to our country. –VP Robredo
The attack on Davao City pushed President Duterte to declare the 'state of lawlessness' across the Philippines.
The declaration is limited such that he can only call out the armed forces to suppress the lawless violence.
