    Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on Sulu bombing that killed 7 soldiers and injured 76 others

    Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on Sulu bombing that killed 7 soldiers and injured 76 others

    Reports have come in regarding two blasts that rocked Jolo, Sulu, earlier today. As of the latest count, 13 are dead, seven of whom were members of our Armed Forces. Many more were injured.

    I grieve with the families of the lost and extend my sympathies to the injured. This attack is even more horrific in the context of the pandemic, when the imperative is to pull together to address the damage already wrought on our health, economy, and way of life. To kill in such a manner, in these times, regardless of motivation, is inhuman.

    I stand with our soldiers and the men and women of our uniformed services as well as with the people of Jolo, and call on government to do all that it can to bring those behind this act of terror to justice.
