Myanmar government officials said one of the blasts in the state capital Sittwe early Saturday morning occurred in front of a court house.

Other three undetonated bombs were also found in the area.

During investigation into the incident, the authorities found a packet suspected as a bomb and further action is being taken, the release added.

However, a lot of them recalled the murder, arson crimes and abduction done by the police and Myanmar troopers.

"Some streets are being blocked by police already because of the bomb blasts", Zaw Zaw, a local resident of Sittwe, told AFP by phone.

Conflict-torn Rakhine state experienced a spike in violence past year when a rebel group of the Rohingya Muslim minority staged attacks on government posts which spurred a heavy Myanmar military response and saw over 600,000 Rohingyas flee across the border into Bangladesh.

Rakhine has been the site of wide-spread fighting between minority Rohingya Muslim insurgents and security forces.

Last month, at least seven Rakhine Buddhists were killed and a dozen injured when local police fired at protesters in the ancient city of Mrauk-U.

No one has claimed responsibility for the Saturday blasts.

He said it was unlikely that the bombs were linked to the Rohingya - who also have a militant wing - as very few Muslims have mobility in the capital.

Over the past six months, the vast majority of Myanmar's 1.1-million Rohingya population have emptied out of northern Rakhine in the mass exodus to Bangladesh.

Myanmar's military responded with a ruthless campaign that the United Nations says amounts to ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya population, who are now overwhelmingly based in refugee camps in Bangladesh.
