Bombs Kill Six in Philippines

11 January 2007

Three bombs killed six people and wounded 27 in the southern Philippines, according to the New York Times. The first one killed two people instantly and wounded two others who later died. A hospital says that two boys aged eight and 12 were among those killed. It was near a lottery stand and, while some officials say that it was probably a militant group, others say it is possibly due to the stand’s owner’s failure to pay winners.
