Surprisingly, it takes the media of a Muslim country to report claims of Rohingya crimes rather than the pro-Rohingya Western media.
Rohingya militants have set fire to houses in Rakhine state in recent days to intensify the exodus of the Muslim minority, the office of Myanmar’s commander-in-chief said on Thursday, in an apparent rebuke to fresh accusations of arson by the army.
More than 500,000 Muslim Rohingya have run from communal bloodshed in Myanmar in the last six weeks and numbers are again rising.
This week Bangladesh reported 4-5,000 civilians crossing the border each day after a brief lull in arrivals, with 10,000 more waiting at a frontier area.
