    MANILA, Philippines - A powerful bomb hidden in a backpack exploded Tuesday at an airport in the southern Philippines, killing at least 19 people and wounding more than 150, authorities said. The government called it a "brazen act of terrorism."
    ...... Two Americans were among the wounded. They were identified as Barbara Stevens, 33, and her 9-month-old son Nathan. They were brought to Davao Doctors Hospital, hospital staff said.


    Stevens said in a telephone interview from the hospital that her family, Southern Baptist missionaries who have been living in the Philippines for five years, had just arrived from Manila when the bomb went off. She said Hyde was waiting to pick them up.


    "I just heard it explode to my side," she said. "I was carrying my infant son so I grabbed my daughter and picked her up and ran away. I was afraid there could be more bombs."


    She said her son was hit by shrapnel in the liver. Her daughter Sarah was injured but releas. Her husband escaped injuries.
