Philippine troops battle rampaging MILFs

It's true, believe us...

Ok, we apologise: Not only has this story got no IT angle, but it's not even a story at all, just a feeble excuse to run an extravagantly silly headline.

However, the headline is actually factually correct, since Philippine troops are indeed battling separatist rebel members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the southern Philippines.

The whole thing's a bit of a mess, with the government having agreed to expand the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, only for the country's Supreme Court to block the deal "after Christian communities argued it would increase sectarian divisions".

There's the full story here at the BBC, and we'd like to conclude by apologising once again for finding rampaging MILFs just too tempting... ®
