    Prisons in the Philippines are known for cooking up unusual rehabilitation programmes. And one of Manila's most notorious jails is allowing inmates to handle cleavers and knives.

    Based on a reality show, it is meant to hone inmates’ skills, keep them productive, and prepare them to return to the work force.
