Fight for justice over Philippines massacre

A year ago 57 people were killed in the worst massacre in recent Philippine history.

While some of the key suspects are now standing trial more than 100 of the accused remain on the run.

It is alleged that members of the Ampatuan family and their supporters carried out the killings in Maguindanao to destroy an electoral challenge by rival politician Esmael Mangudadatu.

His wife and two sisters were travelling in a convoy to register him as a candidate for governor when they were pulled off the road and killed.

More than 30 journalists covering their trip were also murdered.

The Ampatuans deny the charges. Mr Mangudadatu went on to win the election.

On the anniversary of the massacre he told the BBC's Philippines Correspondent Kate McGeown about his hopes for justice.
