Major Jo-Ann Petinglay, spokesperson of Army’s 6th division said the slain persons were both riding a black motorcycle when the Improvised Explosive Device they were carrying exploded.

It is not clear where the bomb’s intended destination was but the explosion site is near a convenience store.

Last week, a bomb also exploded in the same area but no one was hurt. This was followed by another explosion at the base of a steel electric post, causing a province wide blackout.

Authorities  earlier pointed to the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) as the perpetrators but the group denied they were behind the bombings (Ferdinandh B. Cabrera / MindaNews)
