posted on October 25, 2012

Violence between Roghinya Muslims and Myanmar Buddhists in the Myanmar state of Rakhine “killed three people and left more than 400 houses, a monastery and a mosque burned to the ground,” reports Kocha Olarn for CNN. The tension between the two groups has been escalating since June, when violence first broke out.
