Bombed Philippine cathedral reopens

MANILA (UCAN): The Cathedral of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in the violence-plagued southern Philippine town of Jolo reopened on July 16, nearly six months after a fatal January 27 bombing attack (Sunday Examiner, February 10). Five soldiers were among those killed in the twin explosions that rocked the cathedral which also caused serious damage to the  structure which was later repaired with help from the charity, Aid to the Church in Need.
