Manila on alert

Manila - Manila police were put on red alert after a left-wing death squad killed a prominent industrialist and a five-year-old boy in what President Fidel Ramos said was a declaration of war on the state. Leonardo Ty, 82, and five-year-old Jeremy Tay Jin Han from Singapore were among four people killed in three ambushes on Monday. The attacks, blamed on the Alex Boncayao Brigade (ABB), all involved targets from the Philippines' wealthy Chinese business community, which is frequently the victim of kidnappers. Reuter
