A mine was found at the corner of Asia Road and No.2 Bridge in Myawady on July 4 and authorities have since cleared it, sources said.

Two civilians found it beside the traffic police guard house on Asia Road.

“It was intended to sabotage the bridge when trucks pass on it and transactions will be good. This handmade mine is found to contain lethal amounts of high explosive content. We also found out that it is wired to be controlled remotely. Military engineers cleared it. We also thanked two civilians who found it,” said an officer.

Police Lt-Col Myo Thant, head of Myawady district police force, Maj. Naing Lin Oo from Field Company (Engineer) and officials came to inspect the scene.

Many ethnics’ armed forces based in Myawady and bomb explosions frequently occurred before the nationwide ceasefire agreement is signed.
