Philippine’s Duterte Declares State of ‘Lawlessness’ After Bombing


At least 14 people were killed Friday in an explosion at a night market in Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s home town of Davao City in the country’s south, spurring him to declare a state of “lawlessness”.

About 67 people were injured in the blast that happened around 10:30 p.m. on a street crowded with people and food stalls, according to Eulogio Lagoc from local police operations.

Duterte was at his official residence in Davao at the time and visited the site early Saturday. He canceled a planned weekend trip to Brunei but will attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit in Laos next week, said Communications Secretary Martin Andanar. – READ MORE
