Mine blast derails train on Yangon-Mandalay rail section

The No 901 Up train for the Mahlwagon-Myitnge trip on the Yangon-Mandalay rail section derailed after the mine explosion planted by insurgents while passing through Kanyutkwin-Nyaungbintha railway stations yesterday.
Therefore, the two express trains — No 11 Up train from Yangon carrying 288 passengers and No 12 Down train from Mandalay carrying 174 passengers — suspended their trips temporarily.
Regional officials and security forces members proceeded to the site in a timely manner for inspection and the MR staff pulled up the derailed locomotives and carriages to reopen the railway section as quickly as possible.
Since 1 February 2021, terrorist groups have been perpetrating 131 mining attacks and explosions within railway areas and stations, 54 blasts on railway bridges, and 12 instances of blazing stations and employee housings. Their terror acts are aimed at destabilizing the rule of law and endangering the safety of travellers, drawing widespread condemnation from the public. — MNA/KTZH
