MANILA, Philippines — An improvised bomb exploded, apparently prematurely, at a public market in M’lang town, North Cotabato province on Thursday afternoon, wounding only the person who carried it, a regional military spokesman said.

Suspect Norodin Alilaya was wounded on the hand and taken into police custody, said Major Armand Rico, spokesman of the Armed Forces Eastern Mindanao Command.

Rico said it was not clear if the suspect belongs to any group.

Earlier Thursday, authorities defused an improvised bomb at the garbage collection area of a bus and jeepney terminal in Kidapawan City in the same province.

Rico said authorities were checking if the two incidents were related to the military operations that dislodged 500 Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) fighters from 15 villages in North Cotabato.
