NAYPYITAW, Myanmar - According to the leader of the local People's Defence Force (PDF) chapter, military supporters gathered for a pro-junta rally in the junta's administrative capital of Naypyitaw on Monday morning were targeted in a bombing.

Local sources told the press that six people were injured and two vehicles were damaged.

At around 7 a.m., two explosives detonated near the entrance to Lewe Township. According to an eyewitness, junta supporters, including members of the military-proxy Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP), were gathered there with at least ten trucks to drive to the rally together.

According to a source present, despite the earlier explosions, a pro-junta rally with 400 people began at 8 a.m. with the theme "Supporting the peace process and denouncing foreign interference."

Armed soldiers were seen guarding the rally in video footage.
