A gunman burst into Manila Casino at a resort owned by Travelers International Hotel Group inc in Philippines. However, he didn’t fire any shots at the people, and went straight to the casino chips storage room. He shot down the large TV screens and set a table on fire by pouring gasoline.
The man was able to escape to a hotel room where he had burned himself by lying down on the bed, covering himself in thick blanket and dousing himself in gasoline. The $2.27 million worth of stolen casino chips were also recovered.
Most of the deaths were caused due to incompetence of the security guards and staff, who also seemed to have panicked in the scene, and had tried to escape along with the people without following emergency procedures. At least 54 people were hurt and 36 died due to the panic and smoke inhalation.

Please pray for the deceased and for speedy recovery of the injured.
This is strange. None of the victims were wounded with gunshots, rather they had fractures or smoke inhalation injuries according to the San Juan de Dios hospital.
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.
