2 Bombs Explode in Burma-Myanmar's Biggest City of Yangon

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Two bombs exploded Sunday in the largest city of the military-ruled country, witnesses said, but no casualties were immediately reported.

The witnesses, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of official reprisal, said the first blast occurred on a downtown Yangon street at around 8 p.m. The second blast occurred about an hour later on a different street near the luxurious Traders Hotel, they said.

No further details were immediately available, and there were no immediate claims of responsibility. The government has not blamed any group.
