A blast on Christmas eve in Philippines

A grenade explosion outside a Catholic church during a Christmas eve mass, in the Philippines’ southern island of Mindanao, wounded 16 people. Due to the recent increase in security threats, the police in South-east Asia have been on high alert. Police in Australia and Indonesia have already foiled bomb plots and the Malaysian security forces arrested suspected militants.

Currently, no terrorist group has claimed the responsibility of the Mindanao attack, but Muslim rebels and Islamist extremists are known to be active in the province, where there have been blasts in the past. There was also a report that another improvised bomb was left in the area, but the details were still sketchy.

In September of this year, 14 people had died and more than 50 were wounded when an improvised bomb exploded in a crowded market in Davao City. In that case, 9 people linked to an Islamic State militant-affiliated group were arrested. Read the full article here.

Seriously!? What has the world come to? Is there peace on any day? or anywhere? If there was a way people can deal with deal with terrorists as well. It’s not only the job of the Police, but of the common people as well to think and help anyway possible. Thanks.
