Blast Kills 15 in Southern Philippines

Two children and a nun were reported killed in the explosion, the second bombing in this city in less than a month. A March 4 bombing killed 21 people outside Davao’s airport. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Wednesday’s bombing. Both attacks were blamed on the rebel Moro Islamic Liberation Front, but the group denied playing a role in either one. The bomb exploded at about 7 p.m. in a food stall along the highway just outside the pier’s crowded gate as a passenger ship was about to depart, police chief Supt. Isidro Lapena said. Full Story
