2 grenade blasts rock Catbalogan

CATBALOGAN CITY—Two grenade blasts rocked this city early Friday.

The first blast occurred at 1:20 a.m. outside the house gate of Brgy. Canlapwas Chairman Elpa de Jesus.

Another grenade exploded inside the compound of Moore Pacle’s house in Brgy. Silanga, a few moments later.

Two children were reportedly wounded due to grenade shrapnel in Canlapwas. No one was reported injured in the Silanga blast, but it damaged Pacle’s residence.

De Jesus told newsmen present he was not aware of any motives behind the blast, neither did he get a warning or threat during the past days. Police are still investigating the incident.
