Senior SPDC officers and Western Command Commander visit Buthidaung

Buthidaung, Arakan State - (KaladanPress): Six high level SPDC officers and the Western Command Commander Major General Thanug Aye arrived today morning at about 10:45 am in a helicopter in Buthidaung Township, said a military source.

The names of six senior officers were not mentioned but people hoped that the transport minister General Tint Shew and other officers had come to inspect the situation of the border area and business opportunities where the junta wants to develop marine products in the area, said a school teacher in Buthidaung.

On the eve of the officers' arrival to Buthidaung, curfew was imposed in the town at night and there was tight security, with armed personnel coming from Maungdaw, he added.

Nobody has a clue to why the officers have come.
