Demolition at San Juan village resumes after brief standoff – Nation – GMA News Online – Latest Philippine News.

Tension gripped a village in San Juan City anew Friday as residents faced off with a demolition team ordered to take down the shanties there.

Residents of Corazon de Jesus village confronted members of the demolition team and refused to let them destroy their houses, radio dzBB‘s Glen Juego reported.

However, the tension eased after the residents and the demolition team reached a compromise of sorts where the demolition would only demolish the houses of residents who agreed to be relocated.

Some 287 houses in the area were initially scheduled to be demolished, the report said.

The area where the demolition was to take place will be the site of the new government center and City Hall. – VVP, GMA News
