At least 12 people were killed and another 20 wounded when a bomb exploded during a town festival Tuesday in the southern Philippines, police said. North Cotabato provincial Police Chief Federico Dulay said the bomb, believed to be made from an 88mm mortar shell, went off at about 8 p.m. (1200 GMT) in front of the town hall of Makilala town in the southern part of the province. "Clearly this is a terrorist act," Dulay said.
