Dozens dead after gunman torches Philippine casinoA masked gunman set fire to a gaming room at a casino in the Philippine capital on Friday, igniting a toxic blaze that killed 37 people, authorities said. The Islamic State group said its “fighters” carried out the attack, although Manila has repeatedly insisted the incident was not terror related. The dead suffocated inside one of the main gambling venues of the upscale Resorts World Manila, while dozens of other people were injured in a panicked crush to escape, police said.
