This article presents information related to the rise of bomb incidents in Burma. In December, 2005 a small bomb exploded in Yangon killing a university student. Bomb attacks in Myanmar are rare: a bomb exploded in Yangon in June 2004 but prior to this the last recorded incident was in March 2003. While opposition to the government clearly exists both inside and outside the country, control by the security forces is extensive making it difficult for groups seeking to destabilise the government to operate. China continues to be a major source of aid and investment, including signing new agreements during a visit by Myanmar's prime minister in 2004.
