A suicide bomber died after detonating a bomb outside a military camp in the restive southern Philippines, but no other casualties were reported, authorities said.
Suicide attacks were once very rare in the Philippines, but since July 2018 there have been four, including the latest explosion on Jolo island on Sunday.
According to a military statement, the attacker on Sunday was "foreign looking", and was disguised as a woman. However, authorities had not confirmed the attacker's gender.
No group has yet claimed the attack, which came a day after a Daesh-claimed bombing wounded eight at a market on the island of Mindanao.
