At least 20 people died on Sunday in twin suicide bombings at a Roman Catholic cathedral in the southern Philippines. Two bombs exploded within minutes of each other during Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on Jolo Island. The first bomb detonated inside the building and the second exploded at the entrance as churchgoers rushed outside and soldiers and police rushed in. The blasts scattered wooden pews, shattered windows, and hurled human remains and debris across the town square in front of the church. More than 100 people sustained injuries.
