Phillippinies cafe bombed, killing 3

Updated On: Jun 29, 2009

Bombs ripped through a cafe in the southern Philippines early on Monday, killing three people and wounding 15 as reported by sources.

The three dead included the man who was seen putting the explosives inside the garbage bin in a coffee shop near the town of Datu Saudi Ampatuan on Mindanao Island, as reported by one witness, quoting the local police.

'Military bomb experts told me that two bombs simultaneously exploded and they are still looking for the third explosive,' said Eduardo Vasquez, a Roman Catholic priest who witnessed the attack. 
No organization has claimed responsibility for these attacks, which is surprising since this is an area which is largely bothered by Muslim separatist insurgency.

Even the Eid Kabalua, spokesman for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, denied the fact that they were responsible for these attacks.

Reports have also suggested that there has been no immediate action taken by the military in this region.
