Myanmar has seen dozens of revolts and uprisings since gaining its independence from Britain in 1948, most of them led by various ethnic minority groups living in the country’s vast mountainous uplands. Several of the recent explosions occurred in sites with enduring ethnic unrest: one blast rocked Namkham (in a remote corner of Shan state), while the deadliest one hit Tuangoo (a town near the new capital of Naypyidaw, with a large Karen population). Police arrested three suspects in the Traders attack in the southeastern Mon state.
