Buthidaung- Soldiers fired blank shots at Gudam para, Buthidaung South during a meeting of Rohingyas with Hlun Htein officials.

On Saturday, Hlun Htein officials from Yong Cong had organised a meeting in the area along with 45 Rohingya representatives, three each from 15 village tracts. As the meeting was going on, locals heard gunshots from the direction of Gudam para. As locals approached the area, they saw four soldiers escaping the scene.
