On October 19, an explosion occurred inside Glorietta 2. Eight people were confirmed to have died via shrapnel wounds and at least 126 others were injured. The explosion was first reported to be due to an accidentally ignited LPG tank from Luk Yuen Noodle House. However due to the extensive damage caused by the explosion, the Philippine National Police ruled out the scenario and consider the cause as a bomb.

As of 7:30 PM (UTC +8), the blast has reportedly claimed at least nine fatalities and more than 100 were injured. Many of the victims were rushed on to the Makati Medical Center and the Ospital ng Maynila.

Let us be vigilant and pray for the repose of the souls of those who died, courage for the casualties, and safety for our friends and loved ones.
