Bombing at Davao City Night Market near the Ateneo de Davao


A home-made bomb exploded this evening,  Friday, September 2, 2016, at a popular night market along Roxas Boulevard in Davao City tonight, very near the Ateneo de Davao, killing 15 persons and injuring at least 69 others.

National and local authorities still do not know who was behind the bomb attack although some authorities have speculated that this was the handiwork of the Abu Sayyaf rebel group who want to get back at the Duterte government for its hard-line stance against it.

Vice Mayor Duterte has urged the public to remain calm and to stay inside their homes while authorities stabilise the situation and secure the area's safety.

More details as soon as these become available.
