Opposition Groups Have Bombed A Police Station In The Myanmar Capital

It is the latest in a series of similar attacks in the former capital in recent months that two anti-junta guerrilla groups have bombed a police station in downtown Yangon.
The Yangon Anti-Dictatorship Force said it bombed the fourth floor of the Kyauktada Township police station on Sule Pagoda road early in the morning.
A guerrilla group called 44st-UG teamed up with the group in honor of activists who died in an August military raid on Yangon’s 44th street.
The statement stated, “We were able to retreat safely after the incident.”.
The woman who lives near the police station said she didn’t know if anyone was hurt in the blast. It had just stopped raining when I heard a loud bang at 7:30 am. I thought it was a thunderclap at first. “My heart was racing,” she said.
She cited other locals who said Junta forces tightened security in the area and started inspecting pedestrians. Police interrogated three young men, she added.
Since June, as a result of the junta’s murderous crackdown on peaceful protesters, attacks against junta targets have increased.
On Monday, several blasts and shootings were reported in the Yangon townships of Kamayut, Hlaing, and North Okkalapa, reportedly resulting in several deaths and injuries.
