Zamboanga Bombing

Hot on the heels of the Bali bombing, two bombs exploded in two separate shopping complexes in Zamboanga, Southern Philippines, killing at least five and injuring over a hundred. Seven more bombs were reportedly found and defused.

The people killed were not combatants or soldiers; they had nothing to do with Islamic separatists or any other extremist rebels in the country, for or against. And someone killed them anyway. I can’t find words.
