    Casualties pour into hospital after a deadly bus explosion on the southern Filipino island of Mindanao.

    Security officials said at least nine people were killed in the blast.

    Most of the survivors were treated at a local hospital for shrapnel wounds.

    Around 50 people were on board the bus when the home-made bomb went off inside the vehicle.

    Eight of the victims died at the scene and one other died in hospital.

    Maoist and Muslim separatist rebels are active in the troubled area where the blast took place, but no group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
