Will Duterte name the ''third country'' behind the alleged coup bid?
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte revealed on Tuesday what he said was a plot to unseat him hatched by the opposition, Maoist rebels and a group of former soldiers who had mounted failed coups in the past.
In a conversation with his lawyer, shown on national television, Duterte said he had asked the military to "declassify" information about the plot which he said was gathered by a third country he did not identify.
"We have the evidence and we have the conversation provided by a foreign country sympathetic to us," Duterte told Salvador Panelo, presidential legal counsel, in an hour-long conversation.
He said the Communists who opposed to him and a group of ex-servicemen, including a senator he wanted arrested after revoking his amnesty, "were in constant communication".
Duterte said the "connection will be shown, maybe any day now".
