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.
