(ABS-CBN) The Philippine Coast Guard on Monday announced the recovery of 120 sacks of sodium bicarbonate at the Manila port area.
Lt. Senior Grade Armand Balilo, PCG spokesman, said the shipment was seized at the Eva Macapagal Terminal in South Harbor, Manila. Sodium bicarbonate is used in the manufacture of pyrotechnics and explosives.
