KAREN STATE – The Bayint Nyi Naung Cave Bridge between the Bayint Nyi Naung Cave and the junction of War Poe Taw, on the Thaton-Hpa-an Road, Hpa-an Township, was damaged due to the mine attack at the midnight of Sunday (July 9).
That attack destroyed the railing and ripped out the road of the bridge.
“The junta soldiers and the staff from the road and bridge department checked for a few minutes. Small vehicles and motorcycles are allowed to pass. Big vehicles couldn’t pass it. Last night, we heard the launch of attack and it might affect the fitness of the bridge,” said the resident.
Currently, the junta troops are preparing to place the hideout post around the bridge and don’t dare to go out apparently.
