By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspodent

MANILA (Worthy News)– A Christian town in Mindanao is protesting its incorporation into the newly created, semi-independent Islamic region of Bangsamoro in the Philippines, according to BarnabasAid.

Wao's mayor, Elvino Balicao, is seeking an exemption from Bangsamoro's Islamic law and has asked that his town remain directly under the administration of the Philippine government.

Wao is located in the middle of the Muslim-majority province of Lanao del Sur; Wao is the only Christian-majority town in the province.

After a decades-long insurgency, the Philippines signed off on a peace deal with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front to establish Bangsamoro.
