What Was He Doing With A Hand Grenade?
A radar technician for the
Philippines Air Transportation Office is dead, killed in a blast
Saturday when the grenade he was fooling around with detonated.
Andres Caro II, chief of the Aviation Security Group, said
there's no evidence at this point that terrorism, so prevalent in
the southern Philippines, played a part in the explosion at the
Mactan-Cebu International Airport.
Cesar Simeon was killed in the airport explosion. Caro
said he was either fiddling with or cleaning the grenade that ended
his life. Airport operations weren't affected by the blast because
Simeon's office is far from the sensitive radar equipment he
The explosion blew a hole in the floor of Simeon's office,
shattered windows and peppered the walls with shrapnel.
