At a press briefing, deputy presidential spokesman Usec. Abigail Valte condemned the incident, and said authorities are already hunting down those behind the bombing.
“The AFP [Armed Forces of the Philippines] is now supporting the PNP [Philippine National Police] as to finding the perpetrators of this act,” Valte told reporters.
“To my knowledge, there are no groups yet—at least as far as I was informed—that have claimed responsibility; but, certainly, the full investigation is already underway,” she added.
Valte also assured government assistance for the victims of the bombing.
