Philippines' Manobo face uncertain future

Fighting between government and rebels displaces thousands of one of the last indigenous groups in the country.

    The southern Philippines has seen years of armed insurgency and conflict, with several groups active in the area.

    The government recently signed a peace accord with the largest Muslim rebel group, but a military offensive continues against others. This has displaced thousands from one of the last indigenous ethnic groups in the country - the Manobo.
