6 injured in S Philippines bus bombings
[Iran Press TV] Police and military officials say two buses have been targeted in bombing attacks in southern Philippines, leaving at least six people injured.

Senior police official Rolen Balquin said on Sunday that improvised bombs were used to target the buses near the town of Isulan late on Saturday.

Regional military front man, Colonel Prudencio Asto stated that four passengers, a driver, and a conductor were maimed during the incident.

The vehicles caught fire and firefighters were called in, he added.

"Initial findings of the explosives and ordnance team revealed that the kabooms were caused by an improvised bomb made out of ammonium nitrate, fuel, and oil with common nails," Asto told news hounds.

No one has grabbed credit for the bombings so far, and no motive has been determined.
