Bomb detonated

THE MILITARY on Monday detonated a powerful improvised explosive device at a junk shop in Barangay Awang, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao.
Major General Rey Ardo, chief of the 6th Infantry Division, said the IED, fashioned from two 81-mm mortar with battery and a timer, was hidden inside a sack filled with charcoal and left at a metal shop along the national highway near the Mindanao Textile Corporation compound.
Alert civilians became suspicious of the sack when it was unloaded from a passenger jeep by unidentified men who hurriedly left at about 6:30 a.m.
The junk shop is about a kilometer away from the 6th Infantry Division headquarters and about 50 meters from a police detachment in Barangay Tamontaka.
Ardo ordered all military units in the city, Maguindanao and North Cotabato to strictly enforce checkpoints to prevent similar attempts in the future. Edwin Fernandez, Inquirer Mindanao
