2012 Myanmar

Rohijngya Muslims

Since June 2012 there has been ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya Muslims in Arakan State by Burmese authorities and members of Arakanese groups. They’ve attacked Muslim neighborhoods, destroyed mosques, organized mass arrests, displaced over 125,000 people and have blocked aid. Survivors say that the Arakanese have used machetes, swords, homemade guns, and Molotov cocktails. There have been public statements promoting ethnic cleansing and use of mass graves.
