Philippine court expected to decide U.S. security deal is constitutional: source
By Manuel Mogato MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippine Supreme Court is expected to decide that a new U.S.-Philippine security agreement is constitutional and will announce its ruling before President Barack Obama visits Manila next week for an Asia-Pacific summit, a source said. The deal gives U.S. troops wide access to Philippine military bases and approval to build facilities to store fuel and equipment for maritime security, but it was effectively frozen after left-wing politicians and other opponents challenged its constitutionality last year. The source said the Supreme Court's 15-member panel still needed to discuss the matter on Tuesday.
