Terrorists captured and in prison attempted a jail break on Tuesday that failed. Right now the Philipino forces are trying to negotiate a peaceful to a stand off that has already killed 5 people. The talks were going well until the terrorists demanded food and the talks ended for the moment.
MANILA, Philippines Mar 14, 2005 — Muslim-extremist inmates accused of committing some of the Philippines' worst terrorist attacks agreed to surrender Monday after a botched jailbreak left five people dead, including three guards, but the deal broke down when the inmates demanded food, authorities said.

Early Tuesday, authorities threatened to storm the prison unless the inmates quickly surrender.

Well, glad to see they are doing something with the terrorists in the country, but now what? With the terrorists attempting to surrender but on certain terms, what can the Phillipine Government do? With 5 dead already they need to do something that keeps other being killed and do it soon. Why food was a "deal breaker" I don't know, but it may be an attempt to starve them out.
