Twin Bombing in Iligan City

Twin Bombing in Iligan City

Last December 18, 2008 Iligan City experienced again a bombing - a twin bombing! The peacefulness of Iligan City for the last four months was disturbed again. The bombs exploded at the two shopping centers in Iligan City namely Unicity and Jerry's Shoppers World. According to the news, the explosions killed 2 people and injuring an estimated 45.
Our President had the chance to visit the victims because before the bombing happened Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was scheduled to visit Iligan City for the Inaguration of the Sukang Pinakurat Product. PGMA arrived in Iligan City last December 19, 2008, the day after the bombing. And visited the victims
who are now recuperating at the Gregorio T. Lluch Memorial Hospital (formerly Iligan City Hospital) here.
On the same day the President arrived in Iligan, an improvised bomb was recovered
around 4:45 p.m. near Loy's Pharmacy and Jerry's Shoppers World. The bomb was concealed inside a papaya fruit. Thank God it didn't explode and it was successfully disrupted by the EOD personnel.

It is so sad that there are people like that in the world... I truly believe if people worried more about themselves and thier own families then there would be a lot less violence in the world...
