Bomb Threat in Puregold Agora, San Juan

Philippines
December 26, 2017 12:43am CST
I went to the market to buy fish and vegetables for lunch. There are traffic enforcers and policemen in the vicinity. The police officer signaled the vehicles to U-Turn. Then there was an ambulance in the nearby street. I did not know what was happening that time. Only after I went out of the supermarket. It was reported that a suspicious bag was left at the entrance of the supermarket. When I got home, I checked online news was confirmed there's a bomb threat. Screen capture from Twitter.

Did the bomb explode, or they were able to get the bag before?

It is a sad news for the San Juan residents. Not to mention that there is a concert at the park tonight just across the supermarket.

There's a lot of Grinch now that really hates people Celebrating Christmas and they're called terrorist. And also some people like to scare a lot.

It was peaceful the night of the concert. I agree that there are people who want to ruin the celebration.

Let hope there is no more trouble everywhere else. You take care. (It is a bit scary going out during this period.)

Just read the comments, glad it wasn't a real bomb. I just read the latest news about this, it seems like they figured out the person who was possibly behind the whole thing.

I hope there wasn't a bomb, and I believe your country has been through so much lately, there shouldn't be anything else.

There are tragedies left and right. The Marawi incident, the typhoon, the fire incident are just terrifying.

It is scary but the staff at the supermarket were not in panic mode. As if there is no incident.

It is politically motivated, according to the news I have read. It is not good in this season of the year which everybody enjoys their Christmas party and social gatherings.

It is not really good. There will be a concert tonight at the plaza. So I guess there isn't much people going.
