Yangon, Mar 24 (Xinhua): At least 16 people were killed and 48 others injured in a warehouse explosion in Myanmar's eastern Shan state Nyi Rang, external relation officer of the United Wa State Army (UWSA) in Lashio said on Sunday.

The explosion took place in Mongmao town in Wa Self-Administered Division, or "Special Region 2" of Shan state around 5pm local time on Saturday.

"We have some difficulties in providing medical services to such many injured people here. So, we sent them to the hospital in neighboring China for medical treatment," Nyi Rang told Xinhua.

The explosion rocked the warehouse where construction materials, including gas cylinders and explosives, were stored.
