About 300 rescuers searched Sunday for Philippine Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo and his two pilots after their small plane crashed into the sea while attempting an emergency landing. An aide of Mr. Robredo's made a dramatic escape from the plane and was helping in the search, officials said.
Philippine President Benigno Aquino III warned on Sunday of a possible terrorist attack, including bombings, during an annual Roman Catholic procession in Manila that draws millions of devotees.
The suspect in the stabbing death of the father of singer Charice Pempengco of the hit TV show "Glee" surrendered Thursday and admitted responsibility for the crime.
"You know how our politics is like garbage, but this guy has remained clean," he said.
Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo said without elaborating that six to nine people may be involved in the plot.
