Sound bomb found in Taungoo

A sound bomb found planted on the side of the road was disabled in the eastern Pegu division town of Taungoo on Christmas Day.

Found inside a cardboard box, the device was taped to a cigarette lighter. It was discovered on the roadside in front of the local hospital at around midday.

The device was exploded through a controlled detonation by the army’s EOD using the ‘water bottle’ technique around 2:30pm – it caused a loud noise and a white cloud of smoke.

According to an army expert, the device was a homemade sound bomb, a dud explosive designed to generate a loud noise to panic civilians.
