Commemorating the Battle for Manila

Color guards march with the flag of the Philippines and Manila as the city commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle for Manila and its eventual liberation from Japanese forces during World War II. In his speech, Manila Mayor Francis Domagoso called for peace and unity as he honored those who fought in the month-long battle, considered to be the scene of the worst urban fighting in the Pacific theater.
