MANILA: The attack at the casino of Resorts World Manila, in which 38 died, including the gunman, was not a terrorist act, Armeen Gomez, chief of security at the complex, said in a news conference on Saturday.

“The gunman encountered guests even at elevators and he didn’t fire,” Gomez said shortly after he presented footage taken by security cameras showing the gunman from the time he entered the hotel to the time he entered Room 501, where he set himself on fire and shot himself, though there was no video of this last act.
