The United States has condemned the weekend bombings at two shopping malls and a trade center in Rangoon that killed at least 11 and wounded 162.
A State Department official expressed regret for the loss of life and extended U. S. condolences to the victims and their families. The official added that it is not known at this point who is responsible for the bombings.
The Burmese military has blamed ethnic guerrillas and pro-democracy exiles for the attacks. However, outside security analysts say government factions jockeying for power may have been responsible.
On Saturday, bombs exploded at two shopping malls and a trade center in Rangoon. Nearby Malaysia has urged its citizens not to travel to Burma, citing danger from political instability.
