Myanmar security Forces arrested 39 people over explosions

The media has reported that the junta have arrested 39 people who are suspected to be the ones behind the recent explosions and government facility arson attacks. The 39 people arrested were also suspected of attempting to get military training with an ethnic minority rebel group.

Since the Feb 1 coup, there has been a series of small-scale explosions happening in cities and towns where some government offices and military facilities are located. No one has been claiming responsibility for the attacks so far but the military has been pointing on people who aim to sabotage the country.

A newspaper has reported that during a raid conducted by the security forces, they had confiscated about 48 “handmade mines”, 20 sticks of TNT, detonators, fuses as well as other explosive materials such as gun powder.

The newspaper also mentioned that the people who was suspected of trying to get military training with a minority rebel group in Kayah State in the east have been arrested by the force.
