COTABATO, Philippines - An explosion, believed to be a bomb, at a university campus in the Philippines, has left 24 people injured - many critically - including students and teachers, police said Monday. 

It appeared a fire was set off deliberately in a school building housing security personnel at the state-run Cotabato Foundation College of Science and Technology, before the blast occurred Sunday night, police added.

"The fire drew responders, including firemen, teachers, and students, and they were among the injured,'' explained Senior Inspector Rolly Oranza of the local police force in the troubled Mindanao region.
