Philippine witness recounts deaths

Man tells Al Jazeera how he was "ordered to kill" as witness to massacre.



    The chief suspect in the killing of at least 57 people in the southern Philippines has turned himself in to local authorities.

    Andal Ampatuan Jr, a local mayor and member of a powerful political clan in the Maguindanao province, says he surrendered to prove his innocence.

    But Al Jazeera later spoke to a man who said he was there when the killings happened, and he laid the blame squarely on Ampatuan Jr.

    Marga Ortigas reports from Maguindanao.
