Philippines: Grenade Kills 2, Injures 4 in Mosque Attack

HeadlineJan 31, 2019

In the Philippines, a grenade thrown into a mosque killed two people and wounded four Wednesday. The attack in the southern city of Zamboanga came three days after twin bombings at a Roman Catholic cathedral on a nearby island killed 21 people. The two attacks followed a local referendum last week that showed overwhelming voter support for increased autonomy for the Muslim-majority region of Mindanao.
