Manila blast

Three people were killed in a mysterious explosion in a luxury apartment building in the Philippine capital, a government minister said yesterday, as officials lowered the death toll from the blast.
Interior Secretary Mar Roxas said authorities were still trying to assess what had triggered the blast but that initial investigations found no evidence of a bomb.
"We still have not seen any triggering device of any kind among the debris," Roxas told reporters hours after the explosion in a fifth floor unit in the high-end condominium, while bomb-sniffing dogs had found no sign of explosives.
"We are not ruling out anything," he told reporters just before touring the shattered apartment.
