                        STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

I was deeply saddened to learn of the lives lost and families devastated by
the terrible incident that took place on the outskirts of Manila. On behalf
of the American people, I extend my deepest sympathies to all those who
have suffered losses and injuries.  Our thoughts and prayers also go out to
those who are still waiting to hear word about friends and family members
still missing.
