Philippines: Holy Warriors

Channel 4: Unreported World

This week’s Unreported World comes from the southern Filipino island of Mindanao where reporter Peter Oborne and director George Waldrum find a fierce sectarian battle raging between Muslims and Christians.

The conflict is claiming thousands of lives and leaving behind a trail of humanitarian disaster. The team discovers that the conflict is not is just based on religious hatred, but a struggle to claim areas of land rich with mineral deposits- worth billions of dollars. The sectarian violence has already left 100, 000 people dead and 600,000 driven from their homes-but with the land promising such riches there is little hope of the conflict ebbing.

"...a vivid story of intense, cross-generational hatreds"
