A trader and two of his minor siblings were seriously wounded last Tuesday when a dynamite accidentally exploded in their midst in barangay Tausan, Hadji Mutamad Municipality, Basilan Province.

Initial police investigation disclosed that Jalali was assembling dynamites inside his store when the incident occurred at past 1:00 in the afternoon.

According to the Hadji Mutamad Municipal Police Station, while the victim was busy making the explosives, one of the children may have tinkered with the explosive that triggered the blast.
