QUEZON CITY, Philippines - At least one lawmaker and an aide died in an explosion Tuesday at the Philippine House of Representatives outside of Manila.

The driver for Rep. Luzviminda Ilagan also died in the blast, dzBB radio reported.

Luzviminda and Rep. Pryde Henry Teves were among nine people taken to hospitals with injuries.
