ISIS SUICIDE BOMBERS Attack Cathedral of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Jolo, Philippines — At Least 20 Dead

Islamic State terrorists launched a twin suicide bombing attack on Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cathedral in Jolo, Philippines on Sunday.

At least 20 people were killed in the twin blasts.

CNN reported:

The southern Philippines city of Jolo is on lockdown after a deadly double bombing Sunday, as the authorities try to ensure security and investigate the attack that killed at least 20.

The bombing — which was claimed by ISIS — has raised fears of an increase in separatist violence in the country’s restive Mindanao region, following a referendum last week in which an overwhelming majority of voters backed self-rule.

Bombs exploded at the Jolo Catholic Cathedral during Sunday mass, officials said, killing 20 and injuring at least 81 people, including 14 soldiers and two police officers.
