In what may be an ISIS-related event, the Resorts World Hotel in Manila, the Philippines is in Lockdown Mode following gunfire and explosions.

A Philippines hotel and resort complex is in lockdown following a reported attack by at least one gunman.

Police, fire engines and a SWAT team in body armour were in the area around Resorts World in Manila, according to CNN Philippines.

The Manila Standard reported that masked, armed men had attacked the hotel in the Pasay City area.

It said some victims had suffered severe gunshot wounds. NBC News cited a source as saying “there are quite a few injuries”.

Over the last week, militants allied to Isis have engaged in street battles with the army leaving more than 100 people dead. It was sparked by the attempted capture of a top militant leader by the army.

I have little to add other than best wishes to those in the Philippines.
