A Moro separatist guerilla with explosives strapped to his body was behind the deadly bombing of the Davao airport in the southern Philippines that left 21 people dead, defence officials said on Thursday. The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) rebel, who was among the dead, carried a backpack containing the explosives that ripped through a waiting lounge at the Davao airport on Tuesday, the defence department said. Defence Secretary Angelo Reyes’s spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Danilo Servando identified the suspect as Muntazer Sudang, 23, a resident of Kabacan town in the centre of the southern island of Mindanao.
