The 60-foot bridge No 78 at 124/3 milepost between Theinseik and Donwun railway stations on the Bago-Mawlamyine rail section in Thaton Township was exploded by the insurgents at 9:30 pm on 20 May.
The regional officials and security forces members arrived at the scene at 5:45 am on 21 May and deactivated one mine packed in a black plastic bag about 1,000 feet from the bridge.

Since 1 February 2021, terrorist groups have been perpetrating 205 mining attacks and explosions within railway areas and stations, 163 blasts on railway bridges, and 42 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
