Officials at an international school in Burma have canceled classes after an explosive device was found on the premises.
The director of the International School in Rangoon Thomas Tunny says a faculty member found the suspicious object at the school late Thursday. The school caters to U.S. diplomats and other foreigners.
Officials with the U.S. Embassy in Rangoon tell VOA the object was determined to be an explosive device and it was disabled. There were no injuries.
They say Burmese and U.S. officials are investigating the incident and have not determined who is responsible.
The school says classes have been canceled for the day and will not resume until Tuesday, April 18th because of a previously scheduled Burmese holiday.
