A blast has ripped though the armoury of a police camp housing islamic militants in the Philippine capital of Manilla injuring 50 people, mostly police officers. Witnesses say a lightening bolt struck the reinforced concrete bunker prior to the explosions that ripped apart the bunker and nearby buildings. The explosions destroyed a dump for defective ammunition along with evidence against defendants in bombing cases. The bombing cases were being tried inside the camp at "Special Courts".
Officials played down sabotage as a cause of the explosions that rocked the National Capital Region police headquarters at the Camp Bagong Diwa complex shortly before midnight (2am AEST) yesterday.

Police said guards saw a lightning bolt strike the reinforced concrete ammunition bunker shortly before the explosions tore apart the dump and ripped through nearby buildings.

Inmates at the camp's high-security prisons, including Islamic militants on trial on terrorism charges and suspected foreign and Filipino drug dealers, were moved to other buildings.

Lightening Strike? Well placed by God if it was one. Just a co-incidence that the lightening strike hit this camp and destroyed all the evidence?

and on the same day. This was posted.

Australian aid has helped police in the Philippines open a centre devoted to tracking and identifying terrorist bombers.

Equipment in the newly-opened Philippine Anti-bomb Data Centre in Manila have largely been funded by a $40 million anti-terrorism package from the Federal Government.

The package is part of the extended co-operation of the Philippines and Australia in the fight against terrorism.

Head of the Anti-bomb Data Centre, Senior Superintendent Albert Ferrar, says aside from receiving new equipment, Philippine authorities also received anti-terrorism training from Australia.
