ZAMBOANGA CITY CRISIS: 8PM TO 5 AM CURFEW SET @ SEPTEMBER 2013

Mayor Vitaliano Agan Avenue (did you know this is Nunez Extension's present name!)
For the past three nights, the authorities have set an 8 pm to 5 am CURFEW for the City of Zamboanga.

From the Philippine Inquirer dated September 9, 2013
MANILA, Philippines – Curfew was imposed in Zamboanga City on Monday following a standoff between government troops and  Moro National Liberation Front gunmen.
“With the current situation in the City, Mayor Beng Climaco is declaring the imposition of curfew in Zamboanga City starting 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.,” the Zamboanga City posted in its Twitter account.
Curfew was authorized by the city council, which met on a special session Monday afternoon, it added.
“Only people working directly in managing situation will be permitted to go around the city including those in the medical profession,” it also said.
Those working for evacuation and distribution of relief goods are permitted to go around the city...

Let us just follow the rules since this actually keeps us safe... no mistaken identities... decreased risk for stray bullets... no risk for hostage-taking... no unnecessary interrogations and detentions... and no unnecessary movements in the streets which confuses issues!
