US condemns bomb blasts in Myanmar
Washington: The United States has condemned the bomb blast in Myanmar`s biggest city of Yangon that killed nine people.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were the victims of this bombing. I believe we have been told that there were three bombs that exploded. A fourth bomb was found and defused. It took place on a platform constructed for the water festival celebrations," Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs PJ Crowley said.
Crowley said at this point of time, the US does not know who is responsible for this attack. "We don`t know what their motivation was," he added.
"We condemn any kind of violence that victimises innocent civilians. But beyond that, we`re grateful that no Americans were injured in this. But obviously, we`ll be waiting to see what the results of the investigation are," Crowley said yesterday.
At least nine people, including three women, were killed and more than 90 wounded when three bombs exploded at a water festival in Yangon.
The State Television blamed destructive elements for the attacks.
