Myanmar violence: Thousands displaced by fresh fighting

Myanmar violence: Thousands displaced by fresh fighting

Government soldiers are in Rakhine state again, more than two-and-a-half years after a military offensive killed thousands of Rohingya and drove out more than 700,000 others.

This time, they are fighting the Arakan Army, an armed group founded in 2009 that says it is fighting for the rights of the ethnic, mainly Buddhist, Rakhine minority.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says that conditions on the ground and an internet shutdown has made reaching people or gathering information increasingly difficult.

Al Jazeera’s Florence Looi reports from Buthidaung township, in the northern part of Rakhine state in Myanmar.


  1. You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually something that I think I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me. I’m taking a look forward to your subsequent submit, I?¦ll attempt to get the hold of it!

  2. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

  3. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before. “Nothing will come of nothing.” by William Shakespeare.

  4. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. hi!,I like your writing very much! proportion we keep in touch more approximately your post on AOL? I require an expert on this house to unravel my problem. Maybe that’s you! Taking a look ahead to look you.

  6. Some truly superb content on this web site, thanks for contribution. “For today and its blessings, I owe the world an attitude of gratitude.” by Clarence E. Hodges.
