Parcel bomb blast kills woman in Manila

Parcel bomb blast kills woman in Manila

Police say a gift-wrapped grenade exploded and killed a woman when she opened the package inside her house in an upscale neighborhood of Manila.
The metropolitan Manila police chief, Nicanor Bartolome, says police are trying to establish a motive for the blast in Manila's Taguig city and are interviewing other members of the 31-year-old woman's family.
Unwrapping the package apparently removed the pin from the grenade, triggering the blast. Bartolome says the woman died instantly.
