Impeachment papers have been presented to embattled President Joseph Estrada, and a national day of civil disobedience is planned for Nov. 27. The protests will likely shut down business and transit throughout the country, and rallies may continue until the president steps down or is convicted and removed from office. In central Mindanao, Muslim rebels have threatened to carry out attacks during the month of Ramadan and the army has tightened security. Consider deferring travel to Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur until the holy month has passed.
