Resorts World Manila: P1M for victims’ families


MANILA – Families of those who died in an attack in Resorts World Manila will get 1 million pesos as compensation, the chief operating officer of the entertainment complex said.

“Yesterday we lost so many lives because of this senseless act. We hope that we will be able to somehow help,” Stephen Reilly said on Saturday.

A lone gunman entered the casino early on Friday and set fire to gambling tables and rooms. At least 38 people died from smoke suffocation.

Footage of the attack was released on Saturday and showed the gunman bypassing security at the popular entertainment complex.

He then set fire to at least two rooms in the complex before forcing his way into a room where he stole $2 million worth of casino chips.

Police said that the gunman then forced his way into a room in an adjoining hotel and killed himself.
