There were evacuations, again, in Midsayap town in North Cotabato as government forces clash with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.. But the two parties have met on January 28 to prevent more clashes. The fighting has stopped as of Saturday afternoon, but the situation is still tense in at least five barangays in the town even if both forces have disengaged before the Sunday meeting.
