NorthCot road construction site bombed; no one injured

No one was hurt in the explosion because there were no workers around during the weekend, said Chief Supt. Felicisimo Khu, head of the Task Force on Law Enforcement in North Cotabato and Region 12. But he added that the bunker that serves as the workers temporary shelter was damaged.

Personal grudge could be behind the blast, Khu noted.

Marcus Construction, the company contracted by the local government, was tasked to repair and maintain the road from Banisilan to a nearby town in the outskirts Lanao del Sur

It was the sixth explosion that hit North Cotabato since the start of the year. Four of these blasts occurred in Kabacan, although there have been no casualties, police records show. (Malu Cadeliña Manar / MindaNews)
