The Burmese army escalated assaults on the Rohingya civilians in both Maungdaw and Rathedaung Townships since yesterday.

[Please read earlier reports HERE and HERE.]

Following are the UPDATES on the military assaults on the Rohingyas.

1) 6/11/16 9 AM: The Burmese army are still in siege of KoeTanKauk and around 1000 Rohingya civilians have been under their hostage since yesterday. Continuous siege of the village is a tactic being used as a tactic to force other villagers come out of their hide-outs.

Of the civilians taken as hostage, 4 youths were severely tortured and were transferred to ‘Inn Din (Aan Daang) BGP Camp yesterday, where they declared two of them as militants through Burmese media.

The military declared these Rohingya youth as militants just to justify their atrocities at KoeTanKauk since yesterday. Labelling civilians as militants and all so easy for the military
