Myanmar torched by armed mobs



Myanmar is a troubled land with long-suffering people. The People in this country are everything the regime and religious leaders are not.
Gentle, humorous, engaging, considerate, inquisitive and passionate, they want to play a part in the world, and to know what you make of their world.
And Yes this is Burma if you have mind open and you’ll leave with your heart full.
The UN special adviser on Myanmar has visited several sites following the devastation wrought by deadly communal riots in the centre of the country, meeting with some of the estimated 9,000 people displaced, local media said.

Vijay Nambiar visited two makeshift camps for displaced Muslims and a monastery housing Buddhists who also fled the violence, according to governament.

Religious violence in the town of Meiktila claimed at least 32 lives and has displaced thousands since the violence began last Wednesday,
The bloodshed left vast areas of the town in ruins, prompting an army-enforced state of emergency.
Myanmar’s government has deployed military in the riot-hit area on Saturday, after homes and mosques were torched by mobs armed with knives and sticks in the three days of communal rioting.

According to UN It is the worst religious violence since clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in the western state of Rakhine last year left at least 180 people dead and more than 110,000 displaced.
The UN has repeatedly voiced concern over the ongoing plight of the displaced in Rakhine, the majority of them Rohingya Muslims who were forced into insanitary camps.
