COTABATO CITY, Philippines – A homemade bomb exploded Sunday night, July 28, in a state-run university in North Cotabato but there were no reported casualties, police said Monday, July 29.

Unidentified men detonated around 8:15 pm an improvised explosive device they planted outside the administration building of the University of Southern Mindanao in Kabacan town, according to town police commander Chief Insp Jordine Maribojo.

He said the bomb was fashioned from 81-millimeter mortar based on the fragments recovered by military and police bomb experts. “We are investigating the incident. There were no casualties in the attack but the glass windows of the building were damaged,” Maribojo said.

The attack occurred barely two days after a deadly bombing in Cagayan de Oro City that left at least 8 people dead.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attacks. – with reports from Jeoffrey Maitem/Rappler.com
