Muslim Terrorists Tied to 2 Blasts

The Jemaah Islamiah terrorist group, which allegedly carried out the deadly Bali bombing on Oct. 12, is suspected of involvement in two recent blasts in the southern Philippines that killed 37 people, Philippine authorities said Monday. National police intelligence chief Roberto Delfin said five alleged members of the militant Muslim group are being sought in an April 2 blast in Davao City that killed 16 people near a crowded wharf.
