A parcel bomb kills 5 people including 3 defected Myanmar junta policemen

Windowofworld.com – Three parcel bomb explosions rocked West Bago, Myanmar, Monday afternoon. Five people were reported killed, including three police officers who had defected from the military junta.

Another victim killed was a member of parliament who was overthrown by the military junta.

Since the elected government led by Aung San Suu Kyi was toppled in a military coup on February 1, Myanmar has become a chaotic country that has been hit by explosions.

Bomb explosions sometimes target government offices or military facilities.

The latest explosion occurred in a village in the southern part of Myanmar in West Bago at around 5pm on Monday afternoon. The parcel bomb attack was reported by local media, Myanmar Now, which was reported by Reuters, Tuesday (4/5/2021).

According to the report, three explosions – including a bomb on a house in the village – killed a regional parliamentarian from the National Democratic League (NLD) party, Suu Kyi’s party, as well as three police officers who defected from the junta and a resident.

Another police officer involved in the civil disobedience movement was also seriously injured after his arm was knocked off by the blast. The policeman has been hospitalized and is receiving treatment.

Another local media outlet, Khit Thit, also reported on the explosion, citing an unnamed NLD official.

A military spokesman did not answer phone calls seeking comment.

Violence has escalated since the coup, in which hundreds of people were reportedly killed by security forces trying to quell pro-democracy protests in cities and villages.

Ethnic militias also support opposition to the junta, and the military is fighting these militia groups on the outskirts of Myanmar.

On Monday, the Kachin Independence Army, an ethnic rebel group, claimed to have shot down a military helicopter as fighting in the country’s northern and eastern border areas intensified.
