Los Angeles Times - - The World -

Twenty-four peo­ple were in­jured in Manila when some­one hurled an ex­plo­sive into a street party cel­e­brat­ing the end of the Philip­pines’ an­nual bar ex­am­i­na­tions, said Se­nior Supt. Agrimero Cruz, a spokesman for the na­tional po­lice.

The ex­plo­sion took place out­side the uni­ver­sity where the ex­ams were taken, Chief In­spec­tor Er­win Mar­garejo, an­other po­lice spokesman, said in a phone in­ter­view.

Po­lice are try­ing to iden­tify the per­pe­tra­tor, who, ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses, cov­ered his face with a hand­ker­chief, Mar­garejo said.
