Two improvised bombs exploded near a town bridge in southern Philippine city of Iligan early Monday morning, the military said.

Maj Randolph Cabangbang, spokesman of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Eastern Mindanao Command, told reporters that the twin blasts, occurred at around 01:40 a.m. local time (0540 GMT), caused heavy damages to the bridge and nearby houses in Maria Cristina town.

The casualty is not immediately clear.

Iligan, with its share of Christian communities in the Muslims dominating Mindanao region, is a frequent target of bombing attacks planned by the country's radical rebel groups.
