Sniffer dogs flown to Rangoon Trained sniffer dogs assigned to cross-border
towns have been reassigned to Burma’s two main cities Rangoon and Mandalay
since yesterday, reports a source close to the Army.
The dogs were administered anaesthetic before embarkation from Tachilek.
"We were only told there weren’t enough dogs to go round," an
quoted as saying. "No reason was given."
The source said there were speculations that the generals wanted to
the international airports at the two cities under close surveillance.
"Most likely the consequence of the May 7 bombings (that killed
70 and injured hundreds," he commented. "But some have
pointed out the
suddenness of the order from Rangoon, which might mean that there is
crisis situation that calls for urgent and swift action."
