Terrorism Part I

In a five-part series for Morning Edition, NPR's Eric Weiner and Michael Sullivan examine the spread of terrorism in Southeast Asia. In Part One, Weiner reports from the Philippines -- a Roman Catholic country that seems an unlikely place for an al Qaeda cell, but where investigators believe the militant Islamist group gained its first foothold in the region.
