 This is to update everyone on the reported bomb along C5. Please see GMA 
report below:

(Updated 1:06 p.m.) Noontime traffic at the busy  C5-Katipunan area in 
Quezon City was snarled Wednesday after authorities arrived in the area and 
prepared to defuse a suspected explosive. The Metropolitan Manila
 Development Authority said a bomb squad was summoned  to the area, and 
affected traffic along C5, Katipunan and the southbound area of P.Tuazon 
Street. The MMDA posted a photo on its Twitter account indicating the 
operations snarled traffic at the Aurora Katipunan  flyover as of 12:22 p.m. 
It advised motorists to take alternate routes. "Traffic severely affected by 
ongoing bomb diffusion operation at P. Tuazon," it said. MMDA traffic 
discipline office head Yves Gonzalez said  the supposed explosive at C5 
Katipunan and P.Tuazon was defused as of 12:30 p.m. But in a later tweet, 
Gonzalez said the bomb turned out to be a "suspicious box" left
in an abandoned vehicle after a chase. "That's why (the) bomb squad had to 
check," he said. - RSJ/LBG, GMA News
