MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Philippine police say robbers broke into one of the world's largest shopping malls and fired shots to spark panic among shoppers and cover their escape after taking jewelry from a shop.
Police Senior Superintendent Florendo Quibuyen says no one was injured in the daring late Saturday robbery at the SM Megamall in a suburb of the capital, Manila. Investigators were trying to identify two of the robbers, whose faces were caught on security cameras.
Quibuyen said Sunday that the robbers used an iron wrench to shatter glass showcases and take the jewelry.
SM Megamall attracts between 500,000 to almost 1 million shoppers a day.
