LIVE: President Aquino's statement to the nation

MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III is expected to deliver a statement to the nation at 12:00 pm Thursday, September 17.

Aquino is expected to talk about the final results of the investigation on the controversial Mamasapano encounter, and put to rest speculations surrounding the death of Malaysian terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan on January 25.

Such speculations were fueled by Aquino's September 8 statement that there is an "alternative version" of the Mamasapano incident that could hold over 100 people accountable.
