YANGON, Myanmar (AP) Police say two small bombs have exploded in eastern Myanmar, killing one person and wounding several others. They are the latest in a series of unexplained explosions to hit the country.
The latest bombs went off in Namkham, the northern part of Shan state late Wednesday and early Thursday.
A police officer said the investigation is still ongoing. He said: "It looks like they may have been time bombs, we are not sure."
He spoke on the condition that he not be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
Myanmar has been rocked by 10 small bombs in the last week that have killed three people.
The most high-profile, at the luxury Traders Hotel in Yangon, wounded an American woman.
