In this Friday Feb. 1, 2013 photo, Pasay city SWAT members of the Philippine National Police make the rounds of business establishments as they go on patrol at suburban Pasay city, south of Manila, Philippines. Security problems are not new to the Philippines - kidnappings and bombings have plagued the south of the country for decades - but the latest rash of violence comes as President Benigno Aquino III tries to shore up foreign investments and restore Filipinos' confidence in their government.
