Maungdaw – The Burmese armed forces have continuously been committting mass atrocities against the Rohingya minority in Maungdaw, rapes against their women and inhumane tortures of the victims the arbitrary detentions since October 9.
It has been learnt that the Burmese military have been taking several measures to conceal their crimes as the former UN secretary General Mr. Kofi Anan is due to visit the region.
Following are the updates on the unfolding situation on the ground.
30/11/16 2 pm: Hundreds of Rohingya civilians arrested in northern Maungdaw between Nov 25 and 26 are being inhumanely tortured at Kyikanpyin BGP Headquarter.
Reportedly, many of them have been blinded as their eye-nerves have been cut off or their eyes have been gouged, says a detainee who has recently been released.
