MANILA, April 13 (Xinhua) -- The Philippine government has lowered the red alert status to blue in part of the country after the failed satellite launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), the Philippine National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said.

NDRRMC Executive Director Benito Ramos said the no fly, no sail and no fishing zone policy of the government over the eastern seaboard of Luzon has likewise been lifted.

All our responders, Office of Civil Defense in the northern part of the country and Cordillera Administrative Region, all our technical working group, half of our forces are still there, Ramos said.

The Philippines announced in early April that it would implement a "no-fly zone" over areas along the likely path of the satellite to be launched by the DPRK.
