MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- A mayor from the southern Philippines, his wife and two others have been fatally shot in a daring attack at a Manila airport terminal that also wounded four other people.

The airport's general manager says men on a motorcycle fired at Labangan Mayor Ukol Talumpa and his wife as they stepped out of Terminal 3 Friday.

He says they were declared dead on arrival at a nearby air base hospital along with two others, including a 1 ½-year-old boy. It's not clear if they're related to the mayor. The gunmen escaped.

Philippine airports are usually packed with passengers and well-wishers during the Christmas season.
