6 Injured In Grenade Blast In South RP

COTABATO CITY (Juan Magtanggol / 29 Sept) -- At least 6 people were injured when a grenade exploded near a huge crowd watching a rock concert in the southern Philippines, police said Friday.

Police said an unidentified man lobbed the grenade at a crowd in Kabacan town in North Cotabato province late Thursday, wounding at least six students.

There were no reports of casualties, but the explosion sent many people running away from the scene and dozens had been hurt in the stampede.

No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the blast, but police investigators suspect the attack was connected to a fraternity or gang war. Police ruled out terrorism as behind the blast. (Mindanao Examiner)
