U: Three Arakanese villagers were seriously wounded as they were attacked by a
group of Muslim villagers while they were reaping paddies in their fields on
the morning of December 23 in Mrauk-U Township in Arakan State.
The Rambree Township Court has sentenced a villager to one year in prison for
returning to his village after he was exposed by the police on allegations that
he carried out incitements after Ma Thidar Htwe was raped and murdered in
Kyauknimaw’s Sanpya Village in Rambree Township in Arakan State.
Arakanese fishermen said they want Burmese navy to step up security in the sea
off the Arakan coast as the situation in the sea is still unstable due to the communal violence that took place last June and October in the region.
