Zamboanga City (CNN Philippines) — An investigating task group was organized to further look into the Thursday explosion that rocked a fishing company in Zamboanga City late Thursday night (December 17).

Investigating Task Group YL was organized to further determine the motive and the suspects behind the explosion at the fishing company which injured at least three persons.

The task group is headed by Sr. Supt. Debolb Sinas, Deputy Regional Director for Operations for Police Regional Office-9.

Meanwhile, Zamboanga City Police Office Spokesperson Chief Insp. Joel Tuttuh said that police believe that an internal problem among employees of the YL fishing company is the motive behind the explosion which injured two of their security guards.

It was earlier reported that a package, purportedly containing the improvised explosive device had been thrown at the gate of the fishing company seconds before the explosion.

Officials of the fishing company denied having received extortion threats.

No suspects have been identified as of this time.
