MANILA - An explosion hit a warehouse in Basilan province in Mindanao on Tuesday night, just hours after an improvised explosive device (IED) injured 8 people in General Santos City.

Four people on board a motorcycle threw a fragmentation grenade at a warehouse on Rizal St., Lamitan City, Basilan province.

No one was injured in the blast as there was no one in the warehouse at the time of the explosion.

Manhunt operations against the suspects were ongoing, as of posting.

Authorities are investigating whether the incident is related to the business of the warehouse's owner, identified only as Boy Yumul. -- report from Noning Antonio, ABS-CBN Basilan
