MANILA, Philippines— An explosion occurred inside the New Bilibid Prison’s Maximum Security Compound Friday morning, Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan said.

The explosion occurred at 5:15 a.m., Baraan said while the inmates were starting with their morning exercise.

Baraan said initial information they received showed that it was a grenade that exploded inside Building 11 of the NBP.

“CCTV footage showed that it was an inmate who threw the explosive device,” Baraan said.

He said the victims have brought to the NBP hospital for treatment.

    DOJ is really doing nothing to reform NBP. Sec. de Lima once declared that she will introduce reforms and abolish all kubols inside the compound. However, as months and years went by, all we are hearing are bad, worse and the worst events happening inside the NBP. I guess if civilian authorities cannot manage NBP, then high time to bring in the Marines!

    Inmates having high explosives in an high-risk maximum security jail? Hahaha! How about in normal security jails, they are guarding themselves?
