'Dissent' among Philippines separatists

Some separatist fighters leaving ranks as MILF begins peace talks with government.

    The Phillipines government has resumed peace talks with Muslim separatists in the country's south.

    A spokesman for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) said he is optimistic about negotiating an end to a decades-long conflict.
