Maungdaw- A huge number of Tatmadaw personal raided Ludaing in Maungdaw North on Saturday and looted valuables and destroyed Rohingya property, according to our correspondent in the area.

Since the raid on Ward 5 of the village tract, the Tatmadaw has camped out near the Rohingya settlements. They also have some women and alcoholic drinks with them, leading to fears among the local populace that they will carry out atrocities in an intoxicated state.

Many people say the military entered their houses, ransacked property and took away anything they could get their hands on.

Ludaing was one of the village tracts targeted by the Tatmadaw during the recent clearance operations with many being killed and raped.

A huge part of the populace has already escaped to Bangladesh.

Renewed tensions are prevailing in the area following the Saturday.
