Police found and detonated an improvised explosive device near the US embassy in Manila on Monday, CNN.
Two eyewitnesses said the device was placed less than 150 meters (500 feet) from the embassy by a person riding in a taxi, Philippines National Police Chief Ronald "Bato" de la Rosa said at a press conference.
"The (device) found near the US embassy today has the same design as the one used in the Davao market blast," De la Rosa said, referring to the September explosion which killed 14 people.
He added the police theorized the bomb had been planted by an armed Islamist group.
