Tokyo - A Muslim separatist group in the Philippines claimed responsibility for a mid-air explosion on a Tokyo-bound Philippine Airlines jumbo jet that killed one person and injured 10.

The plane flew on to the island of Okinawa with a gaping hole in the floor and made an emergency landing with 307 people aboard. The bomb was placed beneath a seat in the economy-class section of the plane. The dead passenger and the injured were all Japanese, most of them tourists. Reuter
