Population growth and the lack of economic opportunities in rural areas have driven millions of Filipinos into the squatters' colonies that dot the sprawling metropolitan area in and around Manila. Most of the land they occupy is privately owned, and clearing the dwellings often results in violence. The landowner had offered about $1,344 in assistance to the displaced residents, and the operation Tuesday cleared the last holdouts. At least six people were injured and three were arrested by evening. Residents say the community had about 500 families, with some having lived there for 50 years.
