Philippine security forces hunted on Tuesday for the bombers behind blasts in Manila and two other cities that killed 11 people on Valentine’s Day, while investigating a Muslim rebel claim of responsibility.
Abu Sayyaf, a small Muslim militant group linked to al Qaeda, said it carried out the attacks in crowded public places on Monday to punish the government for a heavy military offensive on its strongholds on the southwestern island of Jolo. (reuters)
