- +

Three small bombs went off in eastern Myanmar, killing one person and wounding at least six others, the latest in a series of unexplained explosions to hit the country, police said Thursday. 

The blasts in Namkham, on the northern tip of Shan state, occurred late Wednesday and early Thursday, said a duty officer at the local police station, asking to remain anonymous because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

An investigation is still under way, he said, adding no suspects have yet been named.
