An Army Explosives and Ordnance Disposal team was dispatched to Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat on Tuesday to check out a suspicious package left at a mall there.

 

Malu Cadeliña Manar of Sun.Star Davao reports the explosives experts  performed a controlled detonation on the suspicious package, a white sack, after a bomb-sniffing dog indicated there was a bomb inside. "When the K-9 sat near the sack, then, it was time to disrupt it," the report quotes Inspector Ariel Moralejo of Task Force Talakudong as saying.

 

"After the blast, we saw only bananas," Moralejo also said.  Task Force Talakudong has been on alert since an improvised explosive device went off outside a government bank in Tacurong City last month.
