Bomb injures 30 on Philippines ferry
LAMITAN, Philippines, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- At least 30 people were hurt Sunday when a bomb exploded as passengers boarded a ferry in the southern Philippines.

The BBC reports that the explosion on the Ramona was caused by a homemade bomb left next to cylinders of cooking gas. The boat was about to leave Lamitan on the island of Basilan, a stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf group of radical Muslims.

The bomb started a small fire and left six of the injured with severe burns.

"This could be a concealed explosive device without metallic parts," said Brigadier General Raymundo Ferrer, the army commander in Basilan. "The apparent intention was to injure and scare people."
