Meanwhile, sounds of heavy firing and explosions near Namphalong Fire Sub-station on Myanmar side could be heard at Moreh during the night. Reports said there have been casualties in the incident in Myanmar.
It may be noted that the border town of Moreh is on high alert in view of the army crackdown on pro-democracy protesters resisting military regime in Myanmar.

Hundreds of protesters have been killed in military actions.
