Four bomb explosions hit Sittwe, the capital of Myanmar's western Rakhine state, early Saturday, February 24, morning and one person has reportedly been injured. 

The region was rocked by the blast around 5:47 a.m. local time, according to Xinhua. Three more unexploded bombs were also found in the area. 

The blasts are said to have taken place in a court, the residential compound of secretary of township administration department, district land records department office and on the road. 

"There were three bomb explosions around 4 a.m. this morning where one policeman was slightly injured and we are still investigating crime scenes," the Associated Press quoted state police officer Aung Myat Moe as saying.

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

Myanmar and Rakhine state has made headlines in the last few months due to the Rohingya crisis, which saw around 700,000 refugees fleeing to Bangladesh. The nation and state counseler Aung San Suu Kyi received flak for cracking down on refugees.

India had then backed the internationally-isolated Myanmar government on the Rohingya crisis, facing the ire of Dhaka. But it later sent multiple consignments of relief materials to the refugees in Bangladesh.

"The relief material consists of items required urgently by the affected people, namely rice, pulses, sugar, salt, cooking oil, tea, ready to eat noodles, biscuits, mosquito nets etc," the Ministry of External Affairs had then said in a statement. 

New Delhi had also said that it would "provide any assistance required by Government of Bangladesh in this hour of need." 

The crisis garnered international attention and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that the issue was a "humanitarian catastrophe."
