Ten die as grenade blast and gunfire erupt at Philippine jail

Ten inmates were killed as a suspected grenade blast and gunshots rocked a Philippine jail, officials said. Two alleged Chinese drug criminals were among the victims, while the warden was seriously injured in Thursday night’s explosion.

Senior Inspector Xavier Solda, spokesman of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, said eight of the inmates killed on Thursday night in the Paranaque City jail in metropolitan Manila faced drug cases, including two Chinese nationals found with large amounts of drugs. The two others were facing robbery and homicide charges.
