At least five people were killed after a series of explosions went off in the Central Bago region of Myanmar on Monday, as protests against the hostile military continue.
Three explosions occurred on Monday, killing three police officers who had joined a civil disobedience movement in opposition to February's military coup, Kyodo News reported citing local media.
A villager who had taken in the officers was also killed, and another police officer was seriously injured.
A local council member of the ousted National League for Democracy (NLD) party, led by ex-State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, was among the deceased, according to local media.
