YANGON, (Xinhua): A total of 32 people were killed and 190 others injured during the Thingyan water festival in Myanmar, official media reported Saturday.

There occurred 177 cases including murders, car accidents, fights, pick pocket/theft, arson, and others.


This year’s festival saw less crimes compared with previous years due to precautions from TV and newspapers and close supervision by officials concerned, the report said, adding all nationalities throughout the country celebrated the festival in accord with Myanmar’s traditions and customs peacefully.


Among the country’s 12 festivals, the Thingyan water festival is considered to be the grandest since it is deemed to bring peace and prosperity to Myanmar people.
