Three Rohingya killed in clash with Myanmar police
Yangon: Police and activists say several women villagers from Myanmar`s Rohingya minority have been shot dead in a confrontation with security officials.
A police officer in Mrauk-U township in western Rakhine state today said that three women died in Parein village, where they were part of a crowd that defied efforts to relocate them from the housing they have been living in since their original homes were burned by Buddhists in a wave of sectarian clashes last year that left hundreds dead. The officer asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to release information.
A website covering Rohingya news, Rohingya Blogger, said four women were shot dead and five other villagers wounded in the confrontation yesterday when police opened fire after getting into a quarrel with the villagers.
