International: Philippine military says terrorists were not behind casino attack

The Philippine military has rejected the Islamic State group’s claim of responsibility for an attack on a Manila casino complex in which 36 people died.

A gunman entered the Resorts World Manila complex early Friday and set fire to the gambling tables, unleashing smoke that killed patrons and casino employees.

The gunman fled with $2 million in stolen casino chips, then forced his way into a room in an adjoining hotel and killed himself.

Police say they believe it was a robbery gone wrong.
