Bomb-making materials found in North Cotabato town
KIDAPAWAN CITY — Government troops have discovered in Barangay Inas-Dungguan, a hinterland village of Mlang town in North Cotabato, several electronic circuitry and other components that could be used to create improvised explosive devices (IEDs), a barangay (village) chief said on Tuesday.
Soldiers from 7th Infantry Battalion and the North Cotabato Police raided the house of a certain Anwar where several bomb making materials were found Tuesday.
Barangay chair Jose Sagadan said authorities also found several high powered firearms, ammunition and different mobile phones at the house of Anwar.
Anwar might have sniffed the raiding team and was able to run off from his house before the authorities arrived at the place, said the village chief. SFM
