Philippine police nab 3 Indians with bomb in car


MANILA, Philippines— A Philippine police official says three Indian nationals are facing charges of illegal explosives possession after a powerful homemade bomb was found inside their car.

Regional police chief Benito Estipona says a mechanic found the device in the engine compartment Wednesday at a car dealership in Laguna province’s Alaminos township. The three men left the vehicle there for repairs.

He says the device was fashioned from C4 explosives connected to a detonator, battery and a cellphone.

Estipona said Thursday that police will continue investigating to determine those responsible for placing the bomb in the car, but the three men were liable for carrying the device.

He said a government prosecutor will determine the extent of their criminal liability or whether they were the targets of a would-be bombing.

    strange.

    other news providers said that the indians were unaware of the bomb, and that they were even inside the service center waiting until for the service to finish. not the kind of bomber who will stay inside the blast radius of their own bomb.

    Trust PDI to write the worst (or best) of any situation depending on the personality (or celebrity) they write about.

    How about testing if the device works with the 3 indians in it?

    • Ogie

      Good idea!

      • Platypus09

        What?

        This incident sounded serious. These things should not be taken lightly.

        The US is still dealing with the recent bombings in Boston marathon few weeks ago. And now, we have this here in our country.

        Be careful guys out there.

    Thanks be to God! for discovering the bomb and thwarted the terrorist plan. It would have been a massive disasters if the bomb exploded. It’s a high time to track down & keep an eye with those would be terrorist who come in to our country. The list and the details of all suspected terrorist would be given to NBI & PNP to keep an eye with them once they are perceive to be a terrorist.
