Suspected Bomb Blast in Burma

A suspected bomb blast in the Burmese capital Rangoon has killed one person and injured at least three others. The blast happened in front of the Telecommunications Office, and witnesses said it might have been caused by a bomb. The incident occurred as several thousand troops were in the city to commemorate Armed Forces Day, a national holiday in Burma. Thursday marks the 58th anniversary of the start of a military campaign for national independence from Japan. Bomb blasts are unusual in Burma although Armed Forces Day is always a time of heightened security, says BBC correspondent Jonathan Head. One report said the explosion occurred as cleaners removed rubbish from in front of the office. Witnesses also said another bomb was discovered nearby. Full Story
