Myanmar Blames Bombing in China on ‘Ethnic Group,’ Not Army

Updated on

Myanmar’s air force never entered Chinese territory and an “ethnic group” is responsible for a bomb that killed five farmers inside China, a government spokesman said.

“We checked with the military,” said Zaw Htay, director of the office of President Thein Sein. “Based on the data and GPS, our planes did not enter Chinese territory. Ground data showed we did not enter China territory.”
