A female guest was injured in an
explosion in an upscale hotel in Myanmar's biggest city late on
Monday, police said, in what could be the latest in a string of
bombings in recent days.
Police are already investigating a series of bombings that
began on Friday, when an explosion killed two people and wounded
one in a guesthouse in the town of Taungoo, about 55 km (35
miles) from the capital, Naypyitaw.
Although the cause of Monday's blast in Yangon has not yet
been determined, police lieutenant captain Han Win Soe said: "We
are looking at who stayed in the room before that guest."
Security officers were sifting through a debris-filled room
on the ninth floor of Traders, a popular hotel in downtown
Yangon, according to a Reuters witness. Glass from the room's
window was spread out across the street below.
