House of Maguindanao solon bombed

COTABATO CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / December 28, 2009) – A homemade bomb exploded outside the house a Filipino lawmaker, who is a staunch ally of powerful political clan accused of massacring 57 people in the southern Philippines, police and military said Monday.

It said the bomb exploded in front of the house of Representative Didagen Dilangalen, of Maguindanao province. There was no report of casualties in the weekend attack in Cotabato City where Dilangalen lives.

“I don’t who could have done this. The explosive was made from a mortar bomb,” Dilangalen said.

The blast destroyed the wall of the house and no group of individual claimed responsibility for the attack. Dilangalen is an ally of the Ampatuan clan whose members were charged in connection with the brutal slaying of 57 people last month in Maguindanao province. Among those killed were at least 31 journalists. (Mindanao Examiner)
