He said: “We have dispatched our Explosive Ordinance Detection (EOD) to investigate the incidents and to determine whether it was an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). “Right now, I am at the Specialist Hospital where we have 16 casualties and one dead so far.” The echoes from the loud explosions sent many residents scampering for safety.
