Basilan bombing foiled

ZAMBOANGA CITY – Police foiled a bombing attempt on Saturday in the restive province of Basilan in the Muslim autonomous region.

Police said it defused an improvised explosive assembled from a mortar round connected to a blasting cap and cell phone on a bridge in Lamitan City.

The explosive was in a black backpack when police bomb experts carefully disarmed it. The bridge was temporarily closed while policemen searched the area for more bombs, but found nothing.

No individual or group claimed responsibility for the foiled attack, but Lamitan had been previously bombed by the Abu Sayyaf.

Basilan is a major stronghold of the rebel group in southern Philippines. (Mindanao Examiner)
