MANILA: The Philippines has deployed 180,000 security personnel across the country for Holy Week celebrations, which this year coincide with the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

Around 80 percent of the Philippines’ more than 110 million people are Roman Catholics, whereas Muslims make up about 10 percent of the population.  

“Our commitment extends to ensuring the safety and security of our Catholic and Muslim brothers and sisters during this significant period of religious devotion,” Gen. Benjamin Acorda Jr., Philippine National Police chief, said.
