PNoy, the SAF 44 and the Mamasapano clash

The year started on a not so pleasant note for President Benigno Aquino III when police commandos were killed in a what many called a misencounter in late January with members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, with which the government has signed a peace agreement.
