A bomb blast in a southern Philippine town Sunday, wounding a villager, following US and Australian warnings of possible terrorist attacks in the country. Two men on a motorcycle left the homemade bomb - a mortar shell attached to a timer - on the side of a road in Midsayap township, North Cotabato province, Midsayap police chief Superintendent Chino Mamburam said. A woman sleeping in a nearby house was wounded when the bomb exploded, Mamburam told The Associated Press by telephone. Police questioned two men seen near the scene of the blast, but the suspects denied any role in the bombing, he said.
