Apparently we are not posting enough global incidents in misc.. So here is my contribution for today.
Thirty-five people have been killed in a Manila casino, following an attack in the early hours of Friday morning by a lone gunman who fired shots from an assault rifle and set fire to gambling tables.
An earlier report from Philippines police misstated the death toll as 36.
The victims, who did not appear to have been shot, are thought to have died of suffocation, Southern Police District Director Superintendent Tomas Apolinario said Friday. "Most of the victims were women who were found dead inside the bathroom," he added.
Thick smoke from fires set by the suspect delayed a search of the building, but officers later discovered them during clearing operations, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Director Oscar Albayalde said.
All of the bodies were found in Resort World Manila's casino area, he said. Of those killed, 22 were resort guests and 13 were staff. Another 54 people were injured. The gunman later killed himself.http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/01/asia/resorts-world-manila-philippines/index.htmlhttp://newsinfo.inquirer.net/902024/terrorism-ruled-out-in-resorts-world-attack-gunman-stole-casino-chips
