MANILA – Authorities involved in the probe of the bomb attack on a passenger bus in Bukidnon are yet to identify which group should be held responsible.

Though, the total number of fatalities are yet to be confirmed, latest reports showed that the bombing has left at least 10 people dead and several others wounded.

Meanwhile, Malacañang yesterday vowed to identify those responsible for the attack.

“First, certainly we condemn the violent act that resulted in the loss of lives… the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) is now supporting the PNP (Philippine National Police) in finding the perpetrators of this act,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a press briefing.

She added that the government will support the families’ victims and will give justice to those who died.

“But certainly, we are set on finding who is responsible. To my knowledge, there are no groups yet – at least as far as I was informed – that have claimed responsibility; but, certainly, the full investigation is already underway,” she said.
