10 killed, 60 injured in Philippines after a bomb attack
At least 60 people were injured in the explosion in Davao City, in the southern island of Mindanao.
Witnesses described a loud bang before seeing smoke rise into the air from a massage section at the crowded market, close to the upmarket Marco Polo hotel.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte had visited his home city today. He has been reported as safe at a police station after the blast, his son Paolo Duterte, who is vice mayor of Davao City, told Reuters.
An improvised explosive device caused the explosion, presidential spokesman Martin Andanar said, adding drug traffickers opposed to Duterte's war on crime or Islamic militants may have been responsible.
