Blasts rock Cotabato bus terminal

COTABATO CITY, Philippines--Two grenade explosions rocked a Cotabato City bus terminal on Christmas Day, police officials said Thursday.

Senior Superintendent Willie Dangane, Cotabato City police chief, said that at around 8:15 p.m., a still unidentified man onboard a motorcycle hurled two grenades at the Husky Bus Terminal located at Barangay (village) Tamontaka.

The explosion "slightly damaged" three buses but no one was reported injured in the incident, Dangane said.

The suspect, meanwhile, immediately fled in the direction of Datu Odin Sinsuat in Shariff Kabunsuan.

Revenge is being eyed as a possible motive according to Chief Superintendent Felizardo Serapio. An initial investigation revealed that a number of guards were terminated by the company this month. (By Abigail Kwok, Jeoffrey Maitem
