Protesters tie ribbons and ring bells during a rally near the Malacanang Palace in Manila on August 30, 2009. The protesters gathered to commemorate the International Day of the Disappeared. Amnesty International said on August 25 that government forces and Muslim separatists were both guilty of the murder and torture of civilians caught up in a long-running rebellion in the southern Philippines.
