U.S., Philippines Sued Over Waste 

MANILA, Philippines (AP) - More than 100 people filed suit Friday against
the United States and the Philippines, seeking $103 billion in damages for
deaths and illnesses they say were caused by hazardous waste at former
American military bases.

The suit seeks $1.1 billion from the Philippine government for allegedly
failing to enforce environmental laws and $102 billion from the United
States for illnesses near Clark Air Base and Subic Bay Naval Base. It lists
122 plaintiffs who live near the former bases, used for decades by the U.S.
military until it left in 1992.
