Nine of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s security team wounded in an ambush after bomb hit their convoy in Marawi, on the eve of Duterte’s planned visit. Military spokesmen said a bomb hit the soldiers’ convoy as it drove on a road in a southern region where an armed group which had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) group operated, wounding nine.

“My advance party was ambushed a while ago. The Presidential Security Group was hit by an IED (improvised explosive device),” Duterte said in a speech during a visit to a northern Philippines military camp. “But I’m going there. The advice was to postpone it (the trip), but I said no. We are taking the same route if possible,” Duterte added without explaining the purpose of his trip.
