Why they happen? and is there any relation between GRBs and Magnetars.
It seems strange that you know of Magnetars, but haven't read enough to have some idea what GRBs are.
We do not know with certainty what GRBs are, but we do know that there are at least two very distinct kinds. One type is probably from hypernovas, in which a very massive old star collapses forming a new black hole, and the other may be from the merging of a neutron star with another neutron star or black hole. It may be that some GRBs are in fact bursts from Magnetars.
I hope this helps.
