President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said on Wednesday she will keep a six-day-old state of emergency in place for at least one-to-three more days.

Arroyo imposed the emergency laws on Friday to quash a coup plot by disgruntled soldiers, communist rebels and civilian backers.

"I want to lift the state of emergency at the soonest possible time," Arroyo said on national TV.

"I am asking for three reports to be submitted to me within 24 to 72 hours to review the situation."
