COTABATO CITY, Philippines - At least one person died and three more were wounded in an explosion presumably related to the mid-term elections in Lanao del Sur, police said on Tuesday, May 14.
The incident occurred around 9 pm -- just two hours after the polls closed -- on Monday inside a residential compound in Butig targeted by a M-203 grenade launcher, according to local police commander Papa Macapaag.
“We are still investigating the motive and those behind in the attack. The incident affected the transport of [PCOS] machines used in the elections,” Macapaag told a local radio station.
On the same day, four people were wounded after another grenade was hurled at a polling station in Marawi City, the capital of Lanao del Sur. - Rappler.com
