Bangladesh troops have seized rocket launchers and mines in raids in an area near the border with Burma.
Reports quoted the Bangladesh Home Ministry as saying the troops seized rocket and grenade launchers and anti-tank and anti-personnel mines.
The reports said the weapons were seized in two raids against tribal rebels with suspected links to Arakanese rebels of Burma. They said that after a one-hour gunbattle, the rebels fled across the border into Burma.
