South Korea's Foreign Ministry says one South Korean has died after being evacuated from the Philippine casino stormed by a gunman. 

The ministry said the South Korean victim suffered an apparent heart attack while resting after the evacuation early today. Three other South Koreans had light injuries from the stampede and smoke set off by the attack. 

Casinos in the Philippines are popular with foreign gamblers. 

The gunman started a fire by torching gambling tables and fled with gambling chips. He was found dead hours later of an apparent suicide.
