Burma's military government says four bombs exploded today (Wednesday) in a town on the border with Thailand, killing four people.
A spokesman for the Rangoon government released a statement saying the blasts occurred this (Wednesday) morning in the northeast town of Tachilek, located opposite the town of Mae Sai in Thailand.
The statement says two policemen were among those killed.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosions, but Burmese authorities say they suspect ethnic Shan rebels are to blame. The Shan rebels are among several ethnic groups which have been seeking autonomy from Burma's military government.
The bomb blasts come two days after Burmese and Thai officials agreed to build a new bridge connecting Tachilek and Mae Sai.
