Image of Asia: Supporting a peace accord in the Philippines

In this photo by Bullit Marquez, Filipino Muslims chant "God is Great!" and flash peace symbols as they call for the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law at a rally following Friday prayers at the Golden Mosque in Manila, Philippines. The law would implement a peace accord granting minority Muslims autonomy in the southern Philippines. But the agreement is at risk of derailing after a police anti-terror operation last month led to a clash with Muslim rebels that resulted in the killings of 44 police commandos.
