KIDAPAWAN CITY: An explosion rocked North Cotabato before dawn Wednesday, police said.
Superintendent Reynante Delos Santos, North Cotabato Police director, said the blast, believed rigged from a mortar round, exploded under a concrete bench in front of Tenorio Building in Poblacion 1, Midsayap town.
The blast damaged a pawnshop and shattered glass windows in the ground floor of the building.
The WOW radio station is also located second floor of the building.
“We are thankful that there are no casualties in the blast,” Delos Santos told a local radio station here.
This blast followed a stronger explosion in Cotabato City last Monday that has killed eight people and wounded 30 others.
On Tuesday, North Cotabato Emmylou Talino-Mendoza echoed her constituents’ anxieties over a spillover of bombing attacks in her province.
