Bomb blast in Myanmar


Bomb blast in Myanmar. An official said that a bomb blast in southeastern Myanmar killed one person and injured 12 others on Monday.

Since the military toppled Aung San Suu Kyi’s civilian administration in February 2021, violent conflicts have escalated, unleashing a deadly crackdown on opposition that has killed thousands.

The junta has been battling anti-coup “People’s Defence Force” (PDF) militias, as well as long-established ethnic rebel armies that control large areas of territory close to the country’s borders.

The blast from a vehicle detonated near Thanlwin bridge checkpoint at around 6:50 am local time (0020 GMT), a government official from the Karen State administration council told AFP.

“About 13 people including passengers and security members there were injured,” they said, requesting anonymity.

“One died from those injuries when they arrived at the hospital.”

They did not give any further details, but the checkpoint is known for its strict security.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the incident.

The junta is fighting a slew of ethnic rebel groups.

More than 3,800 people have been killed since the coup, according to a local monitoring group.
