Bloody presidential elections in Philippines

As polling began for the Philippine presidential election, unknown gunmen on board two trucks came and opened fire randomly towards the peacekeeping forces that are protecting a polling station in a town in the south of the country where extremist groups are active, which led to the killing of three security personnel, wounding a fourth, and causing a situation of panic among the electorate.

The shooting was preceded by the explosion of hand grenades near a polling station on Sunday night in the same area, wounding nine people.
