"This blast occurred near Aya and Yoma Bank. Do you know the window in the building was busted?

"The Yoma is still standing as a house in this sad situation," the house said in a declaration. Dean Reuters couldn't get ahold of anyone at the plant. A number of un-verified photos and videoclips published by locals and reporters on public relations sites showed the banking premises with burst doors and broken signs.

Lashio, with more than 170,000 inhabitants, is one of the biggest towns in northeastern Myanmar and is situated on a major highway that connects the key town of Mandalay with the major crossroads on the Myanmar-China frontier at Muse, about 110 km (68 miles) northbound.

This is one of the biggest towns in the country's troubled Shan state, where several ethnically militarized groups are conducting insurrections against Myanmar's army. Explosions of bombs in Shan towns are not uncommon, but usually much smaller. Myanmar's de facto Leader Aung San Suu Kyi is trying to reinvigorate a stammering peacemaking trial to end decade-long nationalistic warfare.

Last weeks cease-fire with the regime was undersigned by two gunmen.
