Terrorism in Burma (also known as Myanmar) primarily consists of anti-government militant activity. Militant separatists in India, such as the United Liberation Front of Assam and the United National Liberation Front, have bases in Burma from which they launch attacks.
Notable incidents include the 1983 Rangoon bombing, allegedly by North Korean agents, and three bombings on May 7, 2005 in the capital which killed 11 and injured more than 150. Ethnic rebels were blamed.
