  • Blasts from at least one parcel bomb in Myanmar have killed five people, including an ousted lawmaker and three police officers who had joined a civil disobedience movement opposing military rule, media reported on Tuesday.
  • Since the elected government led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi was overthrown in a coup on February 1, Myanmar has seen an increasing number of small blasts in residential areas, and sometimes targeting government offices or military facilities.
