Tighter security in Metro as PNP appeals for calm
MANILA, Philippines – Two explosions took place Monday morning in Metro Manila, causing no injuries and leaving only minimal damage as the police called on the public not to panic.
The first blast occurred at the headquarters of San Miguel Corp. (SMC) at the corner of San Miguel Drive and Doña Julia Vargas Avenue in Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City, at around 3:02 a.m.
“There was only partial damage. Some of the letters [on a sign bearing the company's name] fell off due to the strength of the explosion but the logo was not affected,” Chief Superintendent Benjardi Mantele, director of the Eastern Police District (EPD), said.
