September 10, 2010 9:14 am 

MANILA, Sept. 9 — President Benigno S. Aquino III will personally witness Friday the anti-terrorism capability of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) as he views the new equipment and attack techniques developed at the Fort Magsaysay in Nueva Ecija.

From an earlier engagement in Sangley Point, Cavite, the Presidential chopper will land at the headquarters of South Command where the Commander in Chief will be accorded honors.

The President will be accompanied by AFP Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Ricardo David and Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin.

The President will proceed to the HLRB Engagement area for demonstrations on sniper capability at the Fernandez Hill; the Static and Equipment Display, the Joint Hostages Capability demo at the Shoot House and the SMART (simulated, moving automated random target).

Since these areas are far from each other, the entire activity is expected to last more than an hour. (PNA)
