Yangon: At least 10 people, including two women, were confirmed dead and 23 as injured in a bomb blast that occurred in Myanmar`s northern Kachin state Sunday night, a news agency reported.
The blast occurred in a house in the Kachin`s state capital Myitgyina and caused fire in other two neighbouring houses where orphans lived, official sources said.
The wounded individuals were shifted to a nearby hospital. They were stated to be in serious condition.
Last Saturday, another bomb blast had hit Myitgyina but it caused no casualty.
