Incendiary bombings drive another thousand Rohingya from Myanmar | Myanmar News
Over 2,600 buildings were burnt down last weekend in the Rohingya territories in north-western Myanmar when further ten thousand fleeing to Bangladesh in the last 24h. Burma's authorities accused the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) of burning torches in the state of Rakhine.
Since the recent outbreak of force, several hundred deaths. "The ARSA extremists burnt down a grand total of 2,625 homes in the Kotankauk, Myinlut and Kyikanpyin towns and two stations in Maungtaw," said the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar. However, the civilian refugees blamed troops for policies of burnt soil.
With my other children I was able to escape," said Rohingya fugitive Jamal Hossain. Humane Rights Watch said satellites show the extermination of an whole town. "Recent satellites show the complete demolition of a Moslem community and raise serious concern that the scale of the desolation in the north of Rakhine State could be much greater than initially thought," said Phil Robertson, the group's Asia Assistant Warden.
"When the army came to the town with 200 men and set fire..... Every house in my town has already been demolished.
The Rohingya Muslims? In Bangladesh, near the Naf riverbank that separates Myanmar and Bangladesh, newcomers who transport their possessions in bags have pitched raw campsites or tried to squash into available lodgings or houses of tribes. Nearly 60,000 Rohingya have passed the Bangladesh frontier, another 10,000 are in nowhere.
Treating Myanmar's approximately 1.1 million Rohingya is the greatest challenges faced by Aung San Suu Kyi, the head of Myanmar, who is charged by opponents of not fighting for the Islamic minorities who have long been complaining of harassment. "It was right to denounce the Rohingya force or the Rohingya rebels, but it did not go so far as to denounce the brutality against Rohingya civilians," Zawacki said of Aung San Suu Kyi.
" Rohingya are refused Myanmar nationality and are considered irregular migrants, although they claim to have centuries-old origins. And Bangladesh is becoming more and more antagonistic towards Rohingya, more than 400,000 of whom are living in the impoverished southern Asia after having fled Myanmar since the early 90s. "The Bengali issue was a long-standing issue that has become an incomplete job," he said, using a Rohingya word that indicates that they come from Bangladesh.
