The Philippine Supreme Court did not announce an expected decision on Monday on whether a new U.S.-Philippine security agreement was constitutional, foreign media reported, a reverse for President Barack Obama as he heads for Manila to attend an Asia-Pacific summit.

A court source had said last week that the court was likely to uphold the constitutionality of the deal, and that a formal decision from the 15-judge bench would be made on Monday, ahead of Obama's arrival on Tuesday. Supreme Court sources said after the court closed for the day that he had not received any word of a ruling.
