The Philippines is a country of more than 100 million people. Its history and its proximity to China have made it an important U.S. ally, but it's had its share of challenges.
Secretary Napolitano to visit Arizona
From the KJZZ newsroom, I’m Steve Goldstein. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will be in Arizona today to express her condolences to the family of Nicholas Ivie, the U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and killed this week just north of the Arizona-Mexico border. Napolitano will also meet with law enforcement authorities in Bisbee about the investigation into the agent's death. Mexico’s federal police have arrested two men who may be connected with the shooting that left Agent Ivie dead and a second agent injured.
