Buddhist Mobs Attack Muslim Homes In Myanmar, One Dead
(Rooters) - Security forces struggled to control Buddhist mobs who burned Mohammedan homes on Wednesday for a second day in the northern Myanmar city of Lashio in a dangerous widening of ultra-nationalist Buddhist violence.
Scores of young men and boys on cycle of violences and on foot marauded through the city of 130,000 people, some singing nationalist songs, a day after a mosque and religious school were torched.
One person was killed and four were maimed in fighting, Ye Htut, front man for President Thein Sein, said in a Facebook post. Police fired guns to disperse the crowds, he said.
