From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2002 Zamboanga bombing was a series of alleged Islamic terrorist attacks that first occurred in a shopping center in Zamboanga City on October 17, 2002. A TNT bomb exploded inside a shopping center killing six and wounding about 150 people. It was the second terrorist attack in the Philippines in less than a week, following the October 12, 2002 Bali terrorist bombing. Suspicions were focused on the Abu Sayyaf, an Islamic extremist group that is working with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Al-Qaida. A day later on October 18, a bus exploded in Manila which killed three people and wounded 22 civilians, and on March 4, 2003 a bomb exploded on an airport in Davao, killing 21 people.
