CWN Editor's Note: The attack took place in Jolo, a city of 125,000 whose population is 99% Muslim. In 1997, Bishop Benjamin D. de Jesus was slain in front of the cathedral; in 2010, the cathedral was the site of grenade attacks. In 2016, the severed head of a Canadian hostage was found outside the cathedral.
