Two men were killed and three injured by an explosive triggered by ARSA terrorist organisation in Maungtaw Township, Rakhine State, yesterday morning, state media reported.

At 8:55 am on 30 March 2020, a man identified as U San Aung Phyu, 50, and 11 Dainet residents from Mingalar Nyunt Village were on their motorbikes to go check on some bird traps. They parked their bikes near Kamaungseik Village and Aungzu Village and went into the woods on foot.

It was at the intersection to Bawtala Village, 20 feet from Hlaingti Creek bridge, that members of ARSA set of an explosive and shot U San Aung Phyu and his group with small firearms. They ran back to their motorbikes but found them destroyed.
