International observers from Canada, U.S. and Australia hide as 2-hour gunfight breaks out during Philippine elections: exclusive video footage

Amazing footage from Lanao del Sur in the Philippines. A two-hour gunfight breaks out despite the presence of international observers from Canada, Australia and the U.S. They were fortunately unhurt, but in the chaos one women is killed and two others injured.

This is just one of thousands of polling centers across the Philippines as over 50 million people voted in the first ever electronic elections on May 10, 2010. What went on where there were no outside observers and cameras from Kodao Productions and Bulatlat.com... I leave that to your imagination after viewing this video!
