ARMY REPORTS MILF TRAINING CAMP NEAR LANAO DEL SUR
The Army plans to dismantle a newly-built training facility of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front or MILF.
Colonel Gilbert Gapay of the 2nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade says the facility is complete with obstacle courses and watch towers.
He adds, the army is concerned because the facility is near Lanao Del Sur…
a province not within the Bangsamoro area.
The MILF denies having a training camp near Lanao del Sur.
In a related development...
The latest Pulse Asia survey shows 62% of Filipinos in Mindanao are against the passage of the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law or BBL.
The BBL seeks to create a new autonomous region in Mindanao with more fiscal and political powers.

A recent survey showed 8 out of 10 Filipinos are not satisfied with the explanation of the President.

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2015
The year's only solar eclipse darkens the morning skies in parts of northern Europe and Asia.
Total eclipses occur when the moon comes between the Earth and the Sun…

The eclipse was visible in just two places – Denmark's Faroe Islands and the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard.
Other locations had partial eclipses ranging from 30 to 98 percent.

The United States Anti-Doping Agency or USADA will screen the fighters for steroids and other substances. 
A positive result calls for a 4-year ban for the offender.
The big fight on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas could be canceled if either Mayweather or Pacquiao tests positive.
