At least 32 people were wounded when two bombs exploded while they were watching a boxing competition in a central Philippine town as part of an annual Roman Catholic holiday festival, police and other officials said Thursday.

Sixteen of the wounded were admitted to various hospitals while 16 others went home after treatment of their injuries from the late-Wednesday twin blasts in Hilongos town in Leyte province, said Senior Inspector Jenyzen Enciso, the provincial police spokeswoman.

Police recovered an 81 mm mortar cartridge and a cellphone apparently used to detonate the homemade bombs, she said.

Nobody has claimed responsibility and investigators were trying to identify the attackers.
