Several Burma army personnel died following a munitions accident at a military 
base in Kachin State's jade rich Hpakant district.

According to a source with close ties to the military, a Russian-trained artillery 
officer and three subordinates were killed on Nov. 21 at the Hpakant 
Military Strategy Command (MSC). The soldiers were attempting to fire a 105mm 
howitzer shell that exploded prematurely. At least four other soldiers are believed 
to have been injured by the explosion.
