By

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines—Two people were killed when an improvised explosive device (IED) went off around 9:15 p.m. in Sangali village here Wednesday, the police reported.

An undetermined number of others were also injured in the blast that took place inside an eatery owned by village chair Paul Toribio, which is also near a police station in the said village, Senior Supt. Edwin de Ocampo, acting city police chief, said.

De Ocampo said earlier they received reports that several IEDs were placed in various locations in the village.

He said the first bomb was found near a lotto outlet while another one was discovered near a basketball court in the village.

He said while police bomb experts were disrupting the bomb found near the lotto outlet, the IED placed under a table at the eatery went off.

He identified one of the dead victims as Lodeto Ybañez, 19, of Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte.

He said an investigation was still being conducted on the discovery of the IEDs and who could be behind it.

The Sangali blast was the second of such attack in the city this month.

On Oct. 9, 10 people were injured when two separate explosions took place as the city was preparing for the feast of Our Lady of Pilar.
