The police were repelled with stones and Molotov cocktails, and their fire-engine ladder was shaken as it reached the fifth floor. Two policemen were critically injured in the fall.

Pamilacan 1998
A whale shark can grow up to 14m long. For generations the fishermen of the tiny island of Pamilacan have been known as the Hunters of the Bohol Sea. Once they concentrated their efforts on whales and manta rays, recently they turned their skills to whale sharks. Rather than nets or harpoons, the men use hardened steel hooks to catch the giant sharks by hand. Once caught, the whale sharks are towed back to shore alive, then killed and cut up for sale.
