Massacre suspects mansion bombed-missed, landed behind mosque

Mansions of Ampatuan clan targeted by grenade attacks 01/04/2010

Separate grenade attacks targeted two mansions of the Ampatuan family on Sunday night, amid rumors of “VIP treatment” that detained members of the clan, who are facing charges for the massacre of at least 57 people last November 23, are supposedly getting.

But unidentified men who launched the attacks on mansions in the towns of Shariff Aguak and Datu Unsay had missed their mark, police said.

Superintendent Alex Lenesis, Maguindanao police director, said the first grenade had landed at the back of a mosque inside the palatial home of Andal Ampatuan, Sr. A second grenade landed beside a Petron gas station near the mansion of Andal Jr., mayor of Datu Unsay.

Nobody was hurt, but the twin incidents, which occurred in succession, triggered panic and fear among the residents, Lenesis said.
