Philippines bombing kills one, wounds over a dozen

AFP

COTABATO: A bomb ripped through an internet cafe in the southern Philippines on yesterday, killing one person and wounding 15 in the second deadly blast to strike the same city in days, reports AFP quoting authorities.

The explosion in Isulan was a short distance from where an improvised bomb under a motorcycle blew up on August 28, killing three and wounding dozens.

These attacks are the latest violence in the south of the majority Catholic archipelago, where Islamist militants have been fighting a decades-long insurgency.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Sunday’s bombing, but authorities’ suspicion immediately fell on the Islamic State-linked Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF).

“It is the BIFF who is responsible,” Army General Cirilito Sobejana told AFP. “This group is out to sow chaos.”
