The bishop of Basilan, the restive island in the Philippines’ southern archipelago of Sulu, has rejected a controversial request for priests to carry weapons to protect themselves from Islamist terrorists.

The request came after a local priest Felimon Libot and his six security escorts were ambushed on 18 October. The priest escaped unharmed but four people were injured in the attack.

However, Bishop Martin Jumoad said that the request was out of the question.
