SEVERAL explosions damaged railroad tracks and at least one train in Kachin State earlier this week. There were no reported injuries, officials said.
        An explosion occurred between the Mayan and Namti railway stations in Mogaung Township, Kachin State at 11:25 pm on 15 May, damaging the track and the Advanced Passenger Train (APT) running between Myitkyina and Hopin.
        The No. 247 northbound train was forced to reduce its speed as it was crossing Bridge 662 between Htopu and Mogaung stations at 11:50 pm as the train operator discovered the damage on the railroad and the bridge.
        The No. 247 train arrived at Mogaung Station at 12:15 am on 16 May and informed the situation to an officer of the Mogaung Station.
        Following the report, officials inspected the damages. Similarly, the No. 55 northbound train became stranded at Moehnyin Station en route from Mandalay to Myitkyina due to explosions that damaged the railroad tracks between Mayan and Htopu villages.
        Local authorities transported more than 118 passengers by car to their destinations starting at 12 am.
        Similarly, the No. 37 northbound train to Mandalar and the No. 57 northbound Myitsone- Mandalar train were also forced to stop at Hopin Station short of finishing their routes due to explosions on the tracks of the Myitkyina-Mandalay Railway.
        The explosions were intentionally set, officials said. Stranded passengers from both trains were transported by car to Myitkyina.
