MANILA, Philippines - The local government of Iligan is offering a P300,000-reward for any information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects behind the deadly blast in the city last Saturday that killed two and injured over 30 persons.

In a phone interview, Iligan City Vice Mayor Henry Dy said the money came from both Mayor Lawrence Cruz and Lanao del Norte 1st District Representative Vicente Belmonte Jr.

A grenade explosion occurred outside the Il Centro Bar between Roxas and Quezon Avenues 8 p.m. Saturday, killing two and injuring over 30 people. The explosion occurred at the city's poblacion, a bustling area. Dy said it was the first time an attack in that area occurred.

Authorities remain clueless as to the real motive behind the attack. Dy said it could not have been caused by "rido" (clan war) as "I don't think they will affect innocent people. Rido is usually familytrouble."

Another angle authorities are looking at is the ongoing peace process.

"These are scenarios we are looking at but we also need evidence. Asof this time we still don't have a clue until we get an officialreport from the PNP," Dy said.
