PHILIPPINES

Twenty people were killed and 112 others wounded when two bombs exploded in a cathedral in Jolo,
Sulu in the southern Philippines on 27 January. The blasts, which used improvised explosive devices, occurred as churchgoers were attending mass, with the second exploding as government forces responded to the initial blast. The attack came a week after a plebiscite ratified the Bangsamoro Organic Law that will create a regional government to replace the current Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao.
