At least 38 people have now been confirmed dead following an armed and arson attack on a resort and casino complex in Manila, just minutes after midnight on Friday.

Philippine officials blamed the incident on an "emotionally disturbed individual", who tried to carry out a robbery, by shooting at TV screens and setting on fire properties inside Resorts World Manila casino, suffocating many of the victims.

But several reports now say, a fighter of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) was responsible for the attack, a claim that the Philippine national security advisor Hermogenes Esperon dismissed as "plain and simple propaganda."
