Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has rejected insinuations by Burma's ruling military that rebels blamed for bombings in Rangoon had trained in Thailand and obtained explosives there.
Mr. Thaksin told reporters Monday that Thailand does not support activities to hurt its neighbors. "We don't harbor terrorism, " he said.
On Sunday, Burma raised the death toll from the May seventh bombings in the capital to 19, up from the 11 originally reported. At least 162 people were wounded.
A Burmese official blamed the bombings on rebels who allegedly received training in a "neighboring country," by a "superpower country."
The Burmese rebels, as well as foreign security analysts, argue the bombings could have been the work of government factions jockeying for power.
