Three bombs exploded in eastern Myanmar leaving one person dead, police said Thursday, the latest in a series of explosions that the United States denounced as "acts of terror".
Myanmar state media also branded the bombings a "terrorist act" and said they appeared to be targeted at tourist spots as the country gears up for an influx of foreign visitors.
The three bombs exploded overnight Wednesday-Thursday in Namkham in restive northeastern Shan state near the Chinese border, police said.
A municipal worker was killed, a police official told AFP.
