May 29, 2017


Buthidaung- Military personal accompanied by Armed Police Officers entered Shabb Bazaar in Buthidaung and assaulted Rohingyas while looting poultry and other assets from their houses on Sunday, according to our correspondent in the area.

Victims have said the security personal went on a rampage, taking chickens and anything they can get their hands to, including cash and other items that could be stowed away at convenience.

When they came across houses where they could not find anything lootable, they assaulted the occupants of the house.

A huge Tatmadaw contingent have been posted in the Buthidaung regions as the forces carried out secret operations in remote village tracts, killing many including infant children and raping scores of women, according to testimonies collected from refugees who had fled to Bangladesh in recent weeks.
