Title: Bombs Not the Answer
Date of publication: May 2010
Description/subject: There appears to be no rhyme or reason to the recent spate of bombings in Burma. This year, the hot season in Burma really means hot. In April alone, bomb explosions echoed all the way from Rangoon to the country’s northern and eastern regions. Attacks targeted the main China-Burma trade gate in Muse, Shan State on April 14; a pavilion at the annual water festival in Rangoon on April 15; the Myitsone dam project in Kachin State on April 17; and a police station in Demawso in Karenni (Kayah) State on April 27.

Title: Terror in the City
Date of publication: May 2005
Description/subject: Who could be behind Rangoon bomb attacks?... "Rangoon literally means “end of strife”, but these days there has been no shortage of trouble in the former British colonial capital. Rangoon hospitals fought to save the lives of people injured in the bomb blasts, which devastated targets like the City Mart in Dagon Centre The city suffered an almost simultaneous series of well-coordinated bomb attacks in early May. Several people were killed and many injured when bombs exploded within 10 minutes of each other in two supermarkets crowded with Saturday shoppers and at the convention center in west Rangoon, where a Thai trade fair was being held..."
