“The village is totally razed and all the properties and belongings were looted and taken away by the Rakhine extremists from the neighboring Rakhine villages right before the eyes of Security Force and the military. Since the village has been declared to be a Red-Zone or No-Entry Zone for us, we are unable to exactly say how many Rohingyas were killed. Today, we saw many lorries taking the corpses of innocents Rohingya killed away to the forest. They are killing innocent people and covering their crimes successfully. Now, the region has become an open-killing field where innocent Rohingyas are merciless being killed” exclaimed a elderly Rohingya” he continued.

    As per telephonic conversation with Eliyas Bhai from Sheikdar Para yesterday ,it is totally impossible to enter and gathering news for Kiladaung East and west .He had got news from various channel that around 100 mostly kids and women were mercilessly killed by Natala villagers and taken away most of the death bodies which were cut into small pics. Whole the villages were rounded by newly arrived armies. I5 persons were killed after boarding trucks to police station.Most of them were wounded persons. It is also confirmed that 7/8 Rohingyas from Butheedaung were cut into pics and buried in secrete places by Natala Village Chairman. Finally ,it was known and traced out by nearby Rohingays.Up to now many people left for Bangladesh .Some boarded in the small fishing boats for Thailand. The Rohingyas from Alay Thankyaw to Nurullah Para are at the mercy of racist Rakines and government forces. The wole people of Maungdaw and Butheedaung are very tense now!
