Philippine News -- Manila Standard Today

"THE government has alerted 18 Filipinos working in North Korea to get ready to fly home as a result of the tensions caused by the communist state’s nuclear testing, a foreign affairs official said yesterday.

The Philippine Embassy in Beijing had sent representatives to the Filipino’s workplaces to alert them for possible movement, the official said.

Five of the 18 work for different United Nations agencies, four are with the British-American Tobacco Co., and the rest are musicians in Mount Kumgan, a popular tourist spot developed by the South Korean firm Hyundai, according to the official."
