Philippine authorities search for clues on casino gunman's identity

Philippine authorities search for clues on casino gunman's identityPhilippine authorities said Saturday they still did not know the identity of the gunman who killed 37 people when he torched a casino, but insisted he was not an Islamic State group terrorist. IS claimed responsibility, with a report on its self-styled Amaq news agency saying its “fighters” carried out the attack, but Philippine authorities continued to insist Saturday that a mentally disturbed man had been attempting a bizarre solo robbery. “None yet,” Albayalde said in a text message when asked about any leads on the identity of the gunman.
