DAVAO CITY, Philippines—Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte said he received information of a bomb threat two days ago.

“Ang sabi do not pass this around so tumahimik na lang ako (It said don’t pass this around so I kept quiet),” he said, adding that the threat indicated that the attack would happen in General Santos City or Davao.


The vice mayor recently drew flak for announcing a still-to-be verified bomb threat in the city.

This time, Duterte said, he opted to keep silent to avoid being criticized.


Duterte confirmed at least 10 people were killed in the explosion in a night market here Friday night.
