Man held as Philippines probes deadly gun rampage

- +

A man accused of helping a Philippine gunman kill seven people and wound 12 others has been detained as police investigate the motive for the drug-fuelled rampage. 

A campaign poster showing an image of Ronaldo Bae, who once ran in local elections for the post of village chief, hangs from a shanty house in Kawit, near Manila, on January 4, 2013. A pregnant woman and four children were among those shot by him on a drug-fuelled rampage.

Witnesses told police the arrested suspect helped reload a semi-automatic pistol as the gunman, later killed by police, went house to house Friday looking for neighbours to shoot at a slum in Kawit town outside Manila.
