"The Philippine army plans to transform the insurgency-wracked island of Jolo into the country’s second-largest pineapple-producing region in an effort to end decades of bloodshed. Under the plan, Jolo, 950 km south of Manila, would be transformed into a major producer of pineapples to provide livelihoods to impoverished Muslims who have lived under the shadow of rebel violence for decades."
