Number of victims due to Newman Goldliner bus explosion
By now everyone (in the Philippines at least) is aware of the unfortunate incident that happened along EDSA-Buendia North Bound. At around 2pm, an explosion, believed to be an improvised bomb, detonated and tore a hole through the side of a bus. As of 6pm last night, 4 are confirmed dead 14 others are being treated for various injuries. This is a sad sad event for all us Filipinos. Why did they have to do it? What possible reason is there that can justify the senseless destruction and loss of life that occurred? I don’t know, maybe I’m too small to understand the big picture. Anyway, let us just all pray for all those who died, those who got injured, and those whose lives are permanently changed because of this event.
