Breaking News image

At least 25 bodies have been found in a casino and hotel complex in the Philippines, following a shooting incident by a gunman, local media said.

Most of the dead appear to have suffocated from thick smoke after the man set fire to casino tables, news outlet ABS-CBN reported.

The gunman began shooting at TV monitors in Resorts World Manila in the early hours of Friday morning.

Police said he later killed himself by setting himself on fire.

The unnamed man, armed with an assault rifle, sparked a security lockdown and a manhunt in the complex, which ended when his body was found in a hotel room.

More than 50 people have been sent to a hospital to be treated for injuries.
