MANILA, Oct 19 (Reuters) A blast in a Philippine shopping mall that killed at least five people today was most likely not caused by an exploding cooking gas cylinder as earlier suspected, but no firm cause has yet been determined, the national police chief said.

''All indications show it was not a LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) explosion,'' Avelino Razon told reporters at the site. ''We are still trying to ascertain the cause.'' REUTERS SYU KP1306
