Myanmar Security Force (Lun Htin) Arrest Rohingya Women After Failing to Arrest Male Villagers from KiladaungSalem-News.com
The unrest is taking place in villages south of Maungdaw.
(MAUNGDAW, Burma) - According to a reliable news source from Maungdaw, some Rohingya women have been taken to Maungdaw Lun Htin Headquarters from the Kiladaung village (Du Chiradan village), located six miles south of Maungdaw, after Lun Htin (Govt. security forces) failed to arrest male villagers.
It is alleged that last night, a Lun Htin, along with his other Rakhine Buddhist associates, entered the village, reportedly for the purpose of looting.
A G3 gun belonging to one of the Lun Htin is said to have gone missing. So, using the missing weapon as their reason, the security forces entered the village today noon to arrest male villagers. However, almost all the male villagers escaped from their homes in fear of arrest.
The prevailing tense situation leaves these villagers and also those from other neighboring villages extremely worried.
