The Maguindanao province, located
on Mindanao island in Southern Philippines, made headlines in international
media on November 23, 2009, when a convoy on the way to an election office was
held en route by armed men and 57 people were brutally killed. The governor of
the province, Andal Ampatuan, is pointed out as the prime suspect for the
killings.
