Two Bombs Explode in Shan State
30 March 2012
Two bombs exploded in northern Shan State’s Hsenwi township on Tuesday morning. Reports claim the devices exploded within five minutes of each other on a bridge by the town’s gateway. Two more unexploded bombs were later discovered. The bridge, located on the Mandalay-Muse highway, is made of concrete so the explosions caused no significant damage to the structure and traffic was not effected. An explosion at a golf tournament in Tachilek, southern Shan State, at an Armed Forces Day golf tournament claimed one life earlier this week.
