JUST IN: Another explosion in Quiapo 2 dead, 3 injured

The Manila Police District (MPD) secured the Islamic Center in Quiapo, Manila, Saturday evening shortly after getting a report of an explosion in the area, which killed two people, according Radyo Inquirer.
The MPD said the explosion happened at around 5:50 p.m.

In a tweet, Sen. Richard Gordon, chairman of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC), said three people were also reported injured in the blast.
He said the PRC Operations Center dispatched an ambulance to blast site.
Last Friday, April 28, another explosion, apparently caused by an improvised explosive device, rocked Quezon Boulevard near the Quiapo Church, injuring at least 14 people.
Chief Supt. Oscar Albayalde, director of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), said the earlier blast apprently had nothing to do with the Association of Southeast Nations (Asean) Summit, which was then in progress in the Philippine capital.
The MPD said investigators were looking into the possibility that the April 28 explosioin  was part of a gang war. /atm
