Two bomb blasts hit Rangoon

Mar 4, 2009 (DVB), Two bomb blasts occurred in Burma's former capital Rangoon last night, one of which happened near Padonma Park where government troops are deployed.

No one was injured in the blasts, according to police.

The first explosion took place around 9:30pm on Tuesday evening at the corner of Padonma Park in San Chaung township.

About one hour later another bomb went off near a traffic light at Hle Dan intersection in Kamaryut township. The Kamaryut police said the case was being investigated by provincial authorities.

A resident in San Chaung pointed that out it was strange that anyone could manage to plan the attack at the Padonma Park where a lot of government security troops were deployed.
