Bomb injures five in Myanmar’s capital
Yangon - An explosion at a market in Naypyitaw, Myanmar’s capital, injured five men, sources said Saturday.
The handmade bomb went off Friday night in a men’s toilet at the Myoma Market in the city 350 kilometres north of Yangon, the former capital.
‘Five men were slightly injured, and one woman was in shock,’ said a local official who asked to remain anonymous.
Some shops were closed at the market Saturday.
Bombings are rare in Naypyitaw, which is also the headquarters of Myanmar’s military, the country’s de-facto ruler.
