The military said that a foreign-looking woman with a hand similar to a man was the lone fatality in the suicide bombing attack in Indanan, Sulu Sunday, September 8.
According to Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom), the government forces thwarted the bomb attack on a military detachment in Barangay Kajatian in Indanan at 5:45 p.m.
“The suicide bomber was in Abaya attire, a woman and foreign-looking with long hair based on the recovered mutilated head,” it said.
However, the military added that the recovered dismembered hand was similar to that of a man.
Also recovered was the trigger mechanism.
The explosion took place a day after an improvised explosive device rocked a public market in Isulan, Sultan Kudarat where seven people were injured.
