    Philippine governor: Handiwork of evils!

     
    GOVERNOR Emmylou Mendoza of North Cotabato Province, Southern Philippines, on Monday described as the “handiwork of evils” the bombing of a state-owned school Sunday evening.
    Twenty-five persons were seriously wounded when unidentified men set off an improvised explosive device inside the Cotabato College Foundation of Science and Technology (CFCST) in Arakan town while a fire was in progress at about 8 p.m.
    Mendoza directed Senior Supt. Danilo Peralta, North Cotabato police provincial director, to look into the case, identify the perpetrators, and file criminal charges against them.
    Senior Supt. Peralta said a fire was in progress at the residential cottage of CFCST security guards and firemen were trying to put out the blaze with the help of some students, faculty and people living inside the school campus.
    Suddenly, a bomb went off, sending at least 25 persons on the grounds, bloodied and seriously hurt.
    Mendoza said CFCST has a Special Orphanage program and the only in the country.
    “How can fear, injustice and violence exist inside a campus that caters to mostly indigent and deserving students?” Mendoza asked.
    He also directed Peralta to do something to ensure safety of everyone in the college grounds.
    “I am directing Supt. Peralta to restore normalcy in the campus that is conducive to learning and presence of peaceful atmosphere,” she said.
    Police probers are still trying to determine the composition of the improvised bomb.
    The wounded victims, 17 of whom are in serious condition, are currently confined in various hospitals in Kidapawan City.
