Grenade blast in Philippines kills 2, hurts dozens

A grenade explosion inside a cockfighting arena in the restive southern Philippines has killed two spectators and wounded dozens.



Manila: A grenade explosion inside a
cockfighting arena in the restive southern Philippines has
killed two spectators and wounded dozens.

Police say a man tossed the grenade in the crowded arena
during a town fiesta today. Muslim rebels and criminal
syndicates are active in the area, but regional military
commander Col. Leopoldo Galon says the explosion is believed
to have been triggered by a personal feud.

The blast occurred in North Cotabato province, where
extortion was blamed for a bus attack that killed two people
earlier in the week.
