RANGOON — Rangoon police have warned the public to be on the lookout for suspicious packages in public places as a bombing in Pegu Division reportedly killed two and a series of bombs have been placed in Burma’s commercial capital in the space of a few days.

Three small bombs have exploded since Friday, a mine was discovered Monday at a Chinese restaurant in Rangoon and a bomb was found at an eatery in Mandalay, also on Monday.

On Friday, a bomb blast at a guesthouse in Taungoo Township, Pegu Division, killed two people and injured one at about 9 pm, according to local media reports. According to the Democratic Voice of Burma, a man and a woman were killed and another woman was hospitalized when the bomb went off in Taungoo, a town about 220 km (137 miles) from Rangoon.

Then in the early hours of Sunday morning, a bomb exploded at a bus stop in northern Rangoon’s Insein Township. The blast damaged a bus stop and a billboard but no one was injured, according to the government-run New Light of Myanmar newspaper.

“According to reports, police also discovered a home-made bomb with a C-4 detonator, a clock wires at a garbage near the scene [sic],” the newspaper reported, adding that the case was being investigated.

Just heard the news on radio that there was a small bomb blast in Trader hotel on last night. Be careful Max, even though you stay in your room.
