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 on 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 organisations.
