One Dead in Bombing in Southern Philippines Resort Town

  • VOA News

Philippine military officials say one person has been killed and three injured in a powerful blast at a beach resort in the southern Philippines.

Authorities say the bombing took place Sunday in the town of Lebak on Mindanao island.

A regional army spokesman (Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Ponce) accused the rebel Moro Islamic Liberation Front of being responsible for the attack. However, there was no immediate response from the group, which has been waging a battle for independence.

The MILF and other Muslim rebel groups have fought for more than 40 years for a separate homeland in the mostly Christian country. More than 120,000 people have died in the conflict.
