Burma Urges Citizens to Report Bombers

Authorities in military-ruled Burma have called on people to report terrorists, following two explosions and the discovery of a mine in Bago division over the last five days.

The official New Light of Myanmar newspaper on Saturday blamed the bombings on anti-government organizations and armed terrorist groups.

The paper said a bomb blast occurred Friday night on a wooden bridge near the village of Kyauk-ein-su. That blast was followed about 10 minutes later by an explosion near an empty house in the village of Sar-dan. No casualties were reported in either explosion.

The report also said an improvised mine had been found last Sunday in Kanyutkwin, Phyu township after authorities received a tip.
