March 24, 2003|From Times wire reports

Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said she has approved the expulsion of an Iraqi diplomat and another Iraqi Embassy staffer after a U.S. request for countries to kick out Baghdad's diplomats.

"We are only expelling those with some evidence of espionage," she said, adding that the Iraqi Embassy in Manila will not be closed and Iraqi diplomats will be dealt with on an individual basis.
