On Recent Bombings

The spate of bombings in Jolo and Iligan City last yesterday (Tuesday) and Cotabato City (last Sunday) once again has indicated the murderous frenzy of the terrorist groups lurking in Mindanao.

We hope that appropriate and consistent security measures will be in place as prime concern by the authorities and all the communities in Mindanao. Security should not be lenient as terrorism is awake and alive waiting for every chance to strike in order to wreak havoc on Mindanao's peace and order. But this is a dosage they think will serve whatever cause these terrorists are fighting for will only boomerang to them sooner or later.

The acts have no place in a civilized society more especially when they have victimized the defenseless innocent civilians.
