Maungdaw, Arakan– On 9th April 2014 morning, a group of armed Rakhine (Magh) terrorists chased and shot at six Rohingya woodcutters while they were working in the forest in northern Maungdaw.
“Five Rohingya woodcutters were working in a forest in northern Maungdaw this morning. Meanwhile, a group of Magh (Rakhine) terrorists armed with guns appeared at the scene and began shooting at them. Therefore, the Rohingya woodcutters ran for their lives and were fortunate enough to escape alive.
The Rohingya woodcutters are:
1) Nazir Ahmed (son of) Fazal Ahmed (Age 40) from the village of Chung-Pauk-Pyu-Su (Kiyammong)
2) Zafar (son of) Noor Alam (Age 50) from the village of Zeebin Chaung (Zeeyaung Khali)
3) and other three people are from the village of Thay Chaung (Baalu Khali)” said a local Rohingya.
“Recently, many Magh (Rakhine) terrorists suspected to be members of Arakan Liberation Party (ALP) have intruded into Arakan , especially northern Maungdaw. They are operating in Magh (Rakhine0 villages and in the forest. Therefore, it is like we have to live in fear everywhere. On one side, they are government’s forces and on the other side, they are Rakhine terrorists. Contrary to the reality, some domestic media are spreading propaganda as if Rohingya Solidarity Organization (RSO), non-existant today, have intruded into Arakan. Hence, we fear government and Rakhine terrorists will trigger another round of violence against us” he added.
