This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:
Ethnic armed fighters have launched fresh attacks at several locations across northern Myanmar early Thursday, killing at least one civilian staff member at an elite military college, an army spokesman said.

The Northern Alliance, a collective of armed groups active in the region, claimed one attack on the Defence Services Technological Academy in Pyin Oo Lwin, western Shan state, where one person died, and attacks in four other places nearby.

Myanmar’s military frequently clashes with groups who claim to be fighting for greater autonomy for ethnic minorities in the area but Pyin Oo Lwin, a military town also popular with tourists, has been mostly unaffected.
