A passenger bus explosion killed one man and injured one woman in Daik U, outskirts of Yangon. The bus named Shwe Khayee Thi with 35 passengers left to Yangon from Daik U on Monday. The explosion took place near the Koliya Bridge at 8:50 am (0220 GMT). A 55-year-old named U Khant was dead and a 46-year-old woman named Pa Pa was injured in the bus explosion. Earlier this month a small bomb exploded at the offices of the pro-junta Union Solidarity and Development Association in Shwepyi Thar Township. But a Burmese armed student rebel group, Vigorous Burmese Students Warrior (VBSW) claimed responsibility for that bomb blast. The military government in the past has blamed periodic bombings on internal dissidents, ethnic minority rebels or anti-government. The passenger bus belongs to the pro-junta Union Solidarity and Development Association in Kyauk Kyi Township
