Jabidah at 50: Unresolved massacre stalling peace talks

Many local leaders believe the Philippine government has failed to achieve a peace deal because historical injustices have never been acknowledged.

A ceremony has taken place to mark the 50th anniversary of the Jabidah massacre on Corregidor Island in the Philippines.

Local leaders say because the Jabidah massacre of Muslim Filipinos remains unresolved, peace talks between the government and armed groups in the southern region of Mindanao are not moving forward.
