Top Asian News 3:42 a.m. GMTMANILA, Philippines (AP) — The top U.S. diplomat says the United States has been providing the Philippines with surveillance capabilities, training, information and aircraft to help it fight a monthslong siege of a southern city by pro-Islamic State group militants. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Manila for a regional gathering. He says the equipment includes a few Cessna aircraft and a few drones. He says they'll help the Philippines battle "an enemy that fights in a way that most people have never had to deal with." But Tillerson says there's no contradiction between U.S. assistance and concerns about human rights.
