LIVE: Burial of Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani 1

By: Mara Cepeda


More than 2,000 supporters of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos traveled all the way from Ilocos Norte to join his family for a thanksgiving Mass at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

As early as 7:30 am on Saturday, November 19, more than 2,200 Marcos loyalists started arriving at the national shrine for heroes in Taguig City aboard at least 50 buses and 40 private vehicles. The pro-Marcos groups said they rented the vehicles and organized the trip to Manila on their own.
