MANILA Nike Air Force 1 Low Mens UK Sale , April 15 (Xinhua) -- The Philippine government assured on Tuesday to speed up the review of the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) in order to meet the target timeline of passing it into law by the end of the year.
Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. made the remarks after the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) led by Moro Islamic Liberation Front ( MILF) peace panel head Mohagher Iqbal submitted to the Office of the President the draft BBL late Monday afternoon.
"There is a sense of urgency in being able to complete this review because we are all aware of the indicative timetable. The target is to be able to submit an enacted Bangsamoro Basic Law to the people of the affected areas by (end) 2014," he said in a news briefing in Malacanang, the presidential palace.
The government is eyeing to pass the BBL by December in order to have sufficient preparations for the conduct of elections for officials that will regularly administer the Bangsamoro entity by 2016, he explained.
He said the people whom President Benigno Aquino III tasked to review the draft BBL are "quite familiar" with the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB), which the government and the MILF signed last month.
"The CAB is certainly a very substantial input into the crafting of the Bangsamoro Basic Law Nike Air Force 1 Low UK Sale ," Coloma said.
The Office of the President hopes to forward the draft BBL to Congress next month when it resumes session.
The BBL, as enacted by Congress, shall serve as the organic act for the autonomous region in Muslim Mindanao provided for in the 1987 Constitution. The envisioned Bangsamoro government will replace the current Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
CAIRO, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The death toll in a terrorist attack on a mosque on Friday in Egypt's North Sinai had risen to 305 killed, including 27 children Nike Air Force 1 High UK Sale , and 128 others wounded, state news agency MENA reported on Saturday.
"The attackers of the mosque were carrying Islamic State (IS) flag," the statement of the country's general prosecutor was quoted as saying.
"Some 25-30 militants have gunned down the worshippers while performing the Friday prayer," it added.
The attack took place after the mosque's preacher started his speech, when the terrorists threw bombs from the windows and doors of the mosque Nike Air Force 1 Purple UK Sale , besieging the worshippers inside, the statement said.
Later, some masked men, carrying black flags reading "There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet," broke into the mosque with automatic weapons Nike Air Force 1 Mid UK Sale , it added.
Long queues of the victims' relatives were lying on the ground, some covered with blankets, outside the Suez Canal Hospital in Ismailia.
"My 23-year-old nephew, Amir, who was working as a nurse has passed away in the attack Nike Air Force 1 Blue UK Sale ," said Samy Mahmoud from Delta Monofiya province, who came to get the license of burying Amir.
The father of Amir, Magdy, a 45-year-old teacher was also wounded in the attack by three bullets, two in his leg and one in his right arm Nike Air Force 1 Green UK Sale , Mahmoud told Xinhua while waiting outside the hospital.
He could not get the body of Amir and he was buried in collective graves with the others, he said while weeping.
The case would be tackled as "a top emergency case of state security," MENA added.
The attackers were riding five jeeps and they set seven cars of the worshippers ablaze before fleeing.
No group has declared responsibility for the attack yet.
North Sinai province, a mostly desert area bordering Israel and the Gaza Strip, has been experiencing wave of anti-security attacks that killed hundreds of police and soldiers since the army-led ouster of former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 in response to mass protests against his rule.
Now they started to target the Muslim worshippers at mosques for the first time Nike Air Force 1 Mens UK Sale , which is an unprecedented development in terrorist tactics in the country according to security experts.
The law enforcement forces continued their operations to hunt down elements involved in the brutal terrorist attack that targeted worshippers, the Armed Forces said in a Saturday statement.
According to intelligence information and in cooperation with Sinai residents, the Air Force has destroyed over the past hours several hotbeds used by terrorists as bases to launch their attacks, it added.
The hotbeds included firearms, ammunition and explosives Nike Air Force 1 Black UK Sale , read the statement.
Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi vowed on Friday a "fierce action" against the attackers.
