There was an explosion tonight at the Philippine House of Representatives. Two have been killed and nine were seriously injured (at least that’s the latest I’m hearing now as I watch the news).

Congressman Wahab Akbar (Basilan Representative) was killed, leading some to speculate that he was the target.

Just as the nation recovers from a terrible accident, this happens at a government office. I’m still learning about all of the political issues involved with Akbar. Regardless of what was behind all of this, I hate it that the Philippines gets another black eye in the world media.
