MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines on Monday detained a 71-year-old Australian nun for "illegal political activities" after she took part in a human rights fact-finding mission in the troubled south and she was expected to be deported, a leader of a leftwing group said.

Her detention came a day after Giacomo Filibeck, a Socialist Party official from the European Union who had criticised Duterte's brutal anti-drugs crackdown, was deported.
