Two Hurt in Iloilo Mall Blast

A “bomb” exploded in a shopping mall here yesterday, injuring two people, one of whom admitted it was a pillbox he meant to use on an enemy. The victims were identified as Marvin Rafael, a janitor, and Jose Paulo Roldan, a car washer at the mall’s car park. Both sustained foot injuries and were admitted at the Iloilo Saint Paul’s Hospital. In a radio interview, Rona Ganzon — whose husband, former senator Rodolfo Ganzon, was confined at the same hospital – said she did not see any relative taking care of Roldan, who has been taken in for police questioning. Ganzon offered Roldan financial support and learned that he is from Valenzuela City. Roldan told Ganzon that it was his pillbox, called “dalugdug,” that exploded inside the second floor male comfort room of Marymart Mall’s new building at around 2:30 p.m. According to Roldan, he made the pillbox for an enemy who stabbed a friend of his last Saturday night.
