Myanmar junta blames foreigners for recent bomb blasts

Myanmar's ruling junta blamed a string of recent bombings on a foreign organization and called on the public to report any sightings of terrorists, a state-run newspaper said Monday. Three bombings in different parts of Myanmar since Friday have killed two people and wounded five. "Information has been received that a foreign organization has sent terrorist saboteurs with explosives across the border to perpetrate destructive acts inside the country," the Myanma Ahlin newspaper reported. Articles carried in Myanmar's tightly controlled state-run media closely report the government line. The junta "urged the people to come forward" with any information about perpetrators of the attack, the newspaper said, stepping up calls from the weekend for the public to cooperate with officials to expose alleged terrorists.
