President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo declared a state of emergency Friday as she struggled against a reported coup plot and a possible repeat of the protests that ousted two of her predecessors.
The announcement came after the military said a general had been arrested in connection with a coup plot and as people defied a ban on rallying at a shrine of the 1986 revolt that ousted Ferdinand Marcos. Clashes erupted as police tried to disperse the protesters.
