Two killed in Myanmar refugee camp dispute: UN
Yangon: The UN refugee agency said that two people were killed and six wounded when security forces tried to quell a dispute at a refugee camp housing Muslims in western Myanmar.
The agency says yesterday morning`s dispute was apparently triggered by disagreements over how some 4,400 ethnic Rohingya at the camp in Pauktaw township should be resettled.
The camp houses Muslims displaced by deadly sectarian fighting in Rakhine state last year that pitted Buddhists against Muslims.
The agency said today that camp residents feuded with a nearby village leader. It said the casualties occurred when soldiers fired shots to disperse a crowd that gathered at a military post to demand the village leader be handed over to them.
Three women died in a similar incident near another camp earlier this month.
