Myanmar warns bombings in major cities

Myanmar's military government warned that "terrorists" sent by anti-government groups and ethnic rebels were planning bombings in major cities of the Southeast Asian country, state-run media reported Thursday.

The New Light of Myanmar reported that "bombers are planning to commit terrorist acts in harmony with above-ground politicians", an apparent reference to the opposition party of Aung San Suu Kyi.

Last week, the government threatened to dissolve Suu Kyi's pro-democracy National League for Democracy party, or NLD, for alleged links with terrorist groups and other illegal organizations, reports the AP.
