Presidential spokesman Harry Roque observed a moment of silence for the victims of the two “unfortunate tragedies” at the start of his press conference in Camarines Sur Monday.

“We deeply mourn the loss of lives caused by fire at the Manila Pavilion and plane crash in Bulacan. Our sympathies go to the victims, to their families and friends,” Roque said.

“Please join me in a moment of silence as we offer a prayer for the victims of these unfortunate tragedies,” he added.

Three persons were reportedly killed and several others were hurt in the blaze that hit the Manila Pavilion hotel and casino in Manila last Sunday. President Duterte made an aerial inspect of the burning hotel after attending the Philippine Military Academy graduation ceremony in Baguio City. The fire was declared under control on Monday morning.

A small airplane, meantime, crashed into a residential area in Plaridel, Bulacan last Saturday, killing ten people. The six-seater plane was bound for Ilocos when it reportedly hit a power line and plunged into a house in Bulacan.

The two incidents are currently being investigated by authorities.
