MANILA, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Filipinos see no need to impose martial law at this point to solve the many crises facing the country, a recent poll said Wednesday.

A survey by Pulse Asia Research said 74 percent of the 1,200 Filipinos surveyed in December disagreed with the view that martial law may be necessary now in order to resolve the various problems being faced by the country.

Talks about the possible imposition of martial law cropped up after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte floated the idea of suspending the privilege of the habeas corpus in December. But Duterte insisted he had no plan of placing the country under martial rule.

""This is the prevailing opinion in all geographic areas, socio-economic classes and age groupings, as well as among both men and women,"" the polling agency said in a report.

It said disagreement is more marked among (those surveyed) in Manila.

Only 12 percent of those surveyed agreed with the need to have martial rule in the country today, while 14 percent expressed indecision on the matter.

Former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos imposed martial law in September 1972 and was forced to lift it in January 1981 amid mounting criticism from the international community.

BEIJING Wholesale Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , June 14 (Xinhua) -- American college student Otto Frederick Warmbier has been released by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) after more than a year of imprisonment, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Tuesday.

The plane carrying Otto Warmbier has landed in Cincinnati, Ohio Wholesale Cleveland Browns Jerseys , local media reported later the same day.

The 22-year-old student from the University of Virginia has been in a state of coma for more than a year after contracting botulism soon after he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in a trial by the DPRK supreme court on March 16, 2016, according to U.S. local media.


Warmbier was arrested and detained by the DPRK authorities at Pyongyang International Airport on his way back home in early January of 2016 after he attempted to take a political slogan from a staff-only area in a hotel where he stayed during his tour to the country.

Pyongyang accused him of supporting the U.S. hostile policy against the DPRK and undermining the unity of the DPRK people.

Tillerson said in a statement that the U.S. State Department continues to have discussions with the DPRK regarding three other U.S. citizens reported detained.

Three U.S. nationals are still being held in the DPRK following Warmbier's release. Two of them -- Kim Hak Song and Kim Sang Duk -- are teachers of Korean origin who worked at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology Wholesale Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys , and the third is a South Korea-born American named Kim Dong-chul.

The two American teachers were arrested last month for allegedly carrying out hostile activities against Pyongyang. The DPRK foreign ministry spokesman has said they are under investigation by a relevant legislative organ for ""criminal acts against the DPRK.""

Kim Dong-chul, who emigrated to the United States in 1972, was charged with plotting to subvert the DPRK system Wholesale Chicago Bears Jerseys , slandering the country's leadership and gathering state and military secrets when he was on trial in April, 2016 and sentenced to 10 years of hard labor.

In 2014, Pyongyang released Korean-American missionary Kenneth Bae Wholesale Carolina Panthers Jerseys , who had been arrested for hostile acts against the DPRK and was serving a 15-year hard labor sentence.

Together with Kenneth Bae, the DPRK government released Matthew Todd Miller, another U.S. citizen who tore his visa upon arrival at Pyongyang International Airport in an alleged attempt to seek asylum and was later given a six-year sentence for similar charges.

The United States has accused Pyongyang of holding the detainees as political pawns for negotiations with Washington.


Warmbier's release came as American retired professional basketball star Dennis Rodman started his five-day visit to the DPRK Wholesale Buffalo Bills Jerseys , a country he had visited four times before, raising speculation whether his non-official visit was connected with the release of the detained student.

However, before his arrival in Pyongyang Wholesale Baltimore Ravens Jerseys , Rodman told reporters that pleading to free detained Americans is not the purpose of his visit right now.

""My purpose is to go over there and try to see if I can keep bringing sports to North Korea,"" he said.

Asked whether U.S. President Donald Trump knew his trip, Rodman said he is ""pretty much sure that he (President Trump) is happy with the fact that I'm over here trying to accomplish something that we both need.""

Rodman Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Jerseys , one of the few Americans to have met the DPRK's top leader Kim Jong Un, came with an assistant and was received by DPRK officials at the Pyongyang International Airport, but he only posed for photographs without talking to the press.

Kim described Rodman as ""a friend in a good reason"" when they watched a basketball match together in Pyongyang back in 2013. In January 2014 Wholesale Arizona Cardinals Jerseys , Rodman, on his fourth visit to Pyongyang, played a friendship basketball game and sang a happy birthday song to ""his good friend"" to celebrate Kim's birthday.


While the release of the U.S. citizen might send a signal about eased tensions between Pyongyang and Washington Wholesale NFL Football Jerseys , the DPRK Monday also expressed nostalgia for a period of relaxed relations with South Korea from 2000 to 2007, by marking the signing of the historic 2000 North-South Joint Declaration on inter-Korean relations.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in a commentary that the two Koreas experienced ""a precious era of reconciliation and unity"" in that period.
