YANGON (Reuters) – A bomb killed a man in a town north of Yangon in the second of two blasts in or near army-ruled Myanmar’s capital over the weekend, police said.

The man was killed on Sunday in Shwepyitha Township, about 20 km (12 miles) north of Yangon.

“The bomb exploded at about 5:30 p.m. and one man was killed,” a police officer told Reuters late on Sunday, saying he could give no further information while an investigation was being carried out.
