BEIJING —

China has summoned Burma’s minister for a meeting after a bomb from a Burmese aircraft fell in Chinese region and killed four people, the foreign ministry in Beijing said on Saturday.

The Myanmar government is battling ethnic Chinese rebels in the country’s Kokang region on the outskirt with China.

The upsurge in battling lately has sent a huge number of people escaping over the fringe into China’s Yunnan region.

The official Xinhua News Agency said the bomb hit a sugarcane field in the Chinese outskirt city of Lincang, killing four people working there on Friday and injuring nine others.

The bomb fell on Friday in a sugarcane field close to the city of Lincang, in the south-western Chinese area of Yunnan. Nine other individuals were injured, state media reported.

The incident came a few days after a stray shell from Burma smoothed a house in Chinese territory, prompting condemnation from Beijing.

Chinese vice-minister for foreign affairs Liu Zhenmin urged the Burmese ambassador, Thit Linn Ohn, to investigate the bombing and take steps to ensure the safety of the border area.
