People fight to stay in Manila slums

Filipinos flock to their capital to seek fortune but often end up in the city's many slums, now at risk of eviction.

    For many Filipinos, Manila is a city of dreams. Millions flock to seek their fortune but the city has not been able to cope with the influx, with many often ending up in one of the many slums.

    After the slums' recent fires, the government is ordering that the area be razed and thousands of "informal settlers" evicted.

    Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reports on those who feel less than welcome in the Philippine capital.
