From Fox News:

“At least two explosions were heard as a bomb disposal unit detonated what Metropolitan Manila police Chief Oscar Albayalde later described as an IED. Authorities were forced to shut a portion of a major roadway where the device was found.

“National police chief Director-General Ronald dela Rosa said at a news conference that police believe that Maute militants could be behind an ‘attempted act of terrorism’ that appeared to target the embassy.

“The improvised bomb fashioned from an 81-mm mortar round, cellphone, blasting cap and a small battery could have been powerful enough to kill people within 110 yards, police officials said.

“‘After analysis, we can link it to the Maute because of what happened in Davao, the same (bomb) signature,’ dela Rosa said.”

The trash bin where the IED was found was located about 22 years from the embassy.

Military officials say the Maute group was initially linked with an Indonesian terror organization, but members had recently starting wearing the black arm and head bands, and waving the black flag, tied to ISIS.
