3 dead, dozens hurt in Philippine bombing (Just another Isolated Incident.)

The military said the attack bore the hallmarks of the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), the Al-Qaeda's Southeast Asian arm which has, according to latest intelligence, linked up with Philippines-based militants.

The bombing came came just a week before national elections and two weeks after US warnings of imminent terror attacks in the area.

Witnesses reported a horrific scene of dead and bleeding wounded strewn about the smoking rubble of a billiards hall in the market where bomb squad officers said the device had been placed.

    kill Christians, Buddhists and Jews
    peacefully burn down their homes
    .
