One Direction stars ordered to pay drug bond in Philippines

Two members of One Direction have been told to pay bonds of $5,000 (£3,300) each ahead of their visit to the Philippines.

The money, which has been requested from Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, will be forfeited if they are found to be using or promoting illegal drugs during their trip.

The group are due to perform at Manila's SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on March 21 and 22.

However, local group Laban ng Pamilyang Pilipino want the band to take a drugs test when they touch down off the plane.

This is because Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik were caught on video apparently smoking marijuana in a bus on their Where We Are tour in Peru last year.

The Guardian now reports that Tomlinson and Malik have been ordered by the The Philippines Bureau of Immigration to pay money upon arrival.

A rep for the Bureau said the move "intended to protect the public interest should the band members commit any violation during their stay in the Philippines".

After paying the bonds, the two singers will receive special work permits.
