The military-run government of Burma has clamped down on news coverage of Saturday's deadly blasts in the capital city,as observers speculate the death toll was higher than first reported.
Official news media have condemned the blasts at two upscale shopping malls and a trade center in Rangoon, but have offered no further details of the extent of the damage. The official toll is 11 dead and some 162 wounded, but witnesses and
security sources in Thailand say nearly twice as many people may have been killed.
The 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.
Nearby Malaysia has urged its citizens not to travel to Burma, citing danger from political instability.
