Only after the intervention of the U Zaw Myo, the governor of Yin Mar Bin township, did the attackers release the bus and disperse.
We take the safety of our colleagues extremely seriously, and Myanmar Wanbao strongly condemns these senseless attacks on our colleagues. What upsets is that we have always felt very safe in Myanmar and continue to so, and this attack took place on a busy main road where it is normal not to expect such violence to take place. We know that the overwhelmingly majority of our neighbours in this lovely area of Myanmar are peace-loving and they share in our condemnation of this violence against our colleagues. Many people in the villages involved called yesterday to give us support and decry these terrible acts. We are heartened by this and are very touched by their words. We have raised the matter with the relevant authorities. We thank the governor of Yin Mar Bin township for his intervention. Finally, we would like to express our deepest gratitude the kind individuals of Shwe Hlay who helped our colleague continue on their way home.
