ZAMBOANGA CITY — A day after killing two men in an ambush, Abu Sayyaf members bombed the house of the district engineer of Basilan province in what officials said was a bid to extort money.

Supt. Restituto Pangusban, Isabela City police chief, said no one was hurt in the explosion outside the house of Soler Undug, Basilan district engineer, at 9 p.m. on Thursday.

It was the third time it was targeted by the terrorists.

Undug said Abu Sayyaf was demanding protection money of up to P200,000 a month to spare government road projects in Basilan from attacks. —Julie Alipala
