Philippines: Can power and cash absolve a bloodbath?

BANGKOK — On Nov. 23, 2009, gunmen blitzed the convoy of a campaign that dared to challenge the powerful Ampatuan clan. A full 58 members of the entourage, including 32 journalists and a local mayor’s wife, were killed. Many of their corpses were dumped into a pre-dug pit nearby. Three years later, the killings keep coming, and justice has yet to be served.
