More than 100 suspected Muslim rebels stormed a jail in the southern
Philippines before dawn Wednesday, allowing 158 inmates to escape in
what officials said was the biggest jailbreak in the country.
Six of the inmates were killed in firefights with pursuing police and army troops, while eight others have been caught and were being returned to the facility, said Senior Inspector Xavier Solda, spokesman for the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology.
The auto industry's relationship with President-elect Donald Trump
took a dramatic turn Tuesday as Ford Motor Co. decided to shift
investment dollars targeted for Mexico to the U.S., while Trump
threatened General Motors with a tax on some imported small cars.
Ford is canceling plans to build a new $1.6 billion factory in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, and will instead invest some of that money in a U.S. factory that will build new electric and autonomous vehicles.
