BOCAUE — President Rodrigo Duterte has arrived at Philippine Arena for the opening ceremony of the 30th Southeast Asian Games Saturday night here.

Duterte, aboard a helicopter, arrived around 6:30 p.m. at the venue, which is considered to be the largest indoor sports arena in the world.


Before heading to Philippine Arena, Duterte went to the wreath-laying ceremony at Bonifacio Monument Circle in Caloocan, Manila to commemorate national hero Andres Bonifacio’s 156th birth anniversary.
