Glorietta Bombing-totally shocking!

Glorietta Bombing.

Eight people were killed while at least 70 others were injured after an explosion ripped through a mall in Makati City Friday afternoon.

In a press conference held by the Ayala Land management and the police, authorities said 45 injured people have been rushed to Makati Medical Center while 25 were brought to Ospital ng Makati.

Philippine National Police chief Avelino Razon said the blast in the Glorietta 2 ground level at 1:30 p.m. was “probably caused by a bomb”, debunking reports that an liquefied petroleum gas tank caused the blast.

“This was a bomb. But beyond that we can’t say anything else yet because we are still investigating. What I can say is it was not LPG that caused this,” Razon told reporters.

Director Geary Barias, National Capital Region Police Office, has placed all police units in Metro Manila on full alert status and have ordered district offices to put up more checkpoints in the metropolis.

Barias also said he will order more policemen deployed in nearby malls to maintain peace and order.

“We will send policemen to other malls to restore order especially here in Makati and to prevent any untoward incident,” Barias told reporters.

Several shoppers said the blast was heard from a nearby baby store in the mall. Liana Navarro, sister of Black and White Movement’s Leah Navarro and who was in the mall with her mother, said several people including children were seen with “obvious injuries.”

The explosion ripped through the roof of the mall and damaged nearby shops. Debris from the blast were scattered on the streets.

Another witness, Arel Vertucio, said the explosion was so strong that it was felt up to the third level of the mall. Vertucio said he saw some people lying on the ground.

Eyewitness Icy Marinas was only 15 meters away from the Glorietta explosion when it occurred. She said the blast felt like an “intense earthquake.”

She said she saw a pregnant woman crying after the blast while other women started rushing out of the mall with their families. She added that she saw “three bloodied men” near the blast site while the security guards just stood around with no reaction.

President Arroyo ordered the police to “leave no stone unturned” in its investigation on the explosion.

“The President is deeply saddened by this incident and extends her sympathies to the families of the casualties… She has also ordered the PNP to get to the bottom of things and to leave no stone unturned,” Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye said in a statement.

Bunye said the President also ordered the Department of Social Welfare and Development to extend assistance to the victims to mitigate their suffering.

grabe, I never thought na yung ganong mall eh mabobomba pa.. I feel pity for those people who died. Hopefully mahuli na yung may sala,atsaka sana hindi na maulit muli ang ganitong terorismo.

    I don’t totally get the point for all these kinds of mania. I mean, why to they have to create such horrible explosions just to be noticed. Imagine the innocent lives they had to cease at an instant and the families that have been affected by this nightmare. Stupido ang mga nag isip at gumawa nyan and not even the death sentence is enough to extinguish their liability.

    Thank the generals and malacanang for this loss of innocent life. Bakit? Gloria’s bribery breakfast scandal, the broadband scam? Remember those?

    They set off this bomb so gloria wouldn’t be hounded by the press about the scandals. Instead, she’ll get “emergency” powers and be able to arrest suspects (in other words, anybody who speaks out against her).

    Last year it was suspected coup attempts and “terrorist plots”, this year they kill innocents. My question is this: who’s next? You? Your friends? Your family? Your children? These people will kill to cover up their corruption.

    @ ikugan – yeah, correct if if i’m wrong, So everything was the goverment’s fault? they set up everything para malihis sa kanila yung mga issues and whatsoever?

    anyway, thanks for the visit 😀

    My wish is for us to get the real story behind the blast. Unfortunately, we are being informed by authorities who suffer very low in credibility. I would trust the opinion of disinterested parties more like the Australian bomb experts and FBI. We must all demand for a more credible CSI report!!! Otherwise, the perpetrators will not only get away with the crime, they will also succeed in taking us for a ride to hell!!!
