Last 4 hours ago, Hamid (age-12 yr girl) was killed Rakhine Police in Kiladang Village Maungdaw .Her brother confirmed it from the ground.

Received some people name who were involved attacks on Rohingya villages in Maungdaw .Rakhine are Maung Soe Win ,Mg Mg Che,U Kaung ,Pho Tha Tu ,Ney Min Twe. Maungdaw Ward(4) Ploice officers Hla Myint ,Tun Tun Kyaw, Maung Cha, Tin Aye ( Who killed 10 yr Rohingya girl),Bo Latt, Aung Kyaw Thein. They killed more than 150 Rohingya people (confirmed).Dead body found 36 and other taken by Police Trucks.There are more than 100 people still missing in Maungdaw.

Rakhine people burnt in Haindapara Village, Maungdaw ,Arakan State.The attacks taken place in Arpauk Warr village Kyauktaw Town ,Arakan State and clashed with Rohingyas. 1 Rohingya died (confirmed) and Rakhine burnt 21 houses.

Rakhines rounded up by Aung Dine village and Sakyar village in Min Bya Town, Rakhine State. Rohingya people from Min Bya town are worrying and do not know what time Rakhine will set fire their villages. This information is confirmed and received it it our contact in Rangoon just now.

Rohingya people are seriously and painfully suffering from food shortage as authorities are not at all helping Rohingya with food while Rakhines has been enjoying all sorts of cares from authorities. Moreover, Rakhines public is not selling food to Rohingya making things extremely difficult for Rohingya's survival.

They need immediate supply of food, clothes and medicine. People are dying of hunger and lack of medical care, shelters and clothing. We need immediate UN and international help to save the Rohingya people. It is clearly understood that Military government is not doing any to help save lives of Rohingya people in the most effected areas such as Akyab, Maungdaw, Rathidaung, Buthidaung and other cities.

In Santoli of Akyab Rohingyas Muslims are being circled by Rakhine mobs and most of the Rohingyas didn’t have food one week now. 
The authority is not allowing the general public to bring supply of food from other areas to the effected areas. Therefore it is seriously important to give international pressures to the military junta to immediately allow the public supply necessary food, medicine and clothing as well as sheltering equipment

  1. Rakhine State, western Burma -
    Two death row inmates transferred to a prison in the state's capital

    June 20, 2012

    Mahmoud Rauhi and Kochi, the death-row inmates of Kyaukpyu prison in Rakhine State, were transferred to Sittwe (formerly Akyab) prison in the state's capital today.

    Their transfer to Sittwe prison is attributable to the fact that there is no death row in Kyaukpyu prison, according to a local man who learned this from prison officials.

    Three Rohingya Muslims - Mahmoud Rauhi (18), Kochi (21) and Htet Htet (Rasheed) (23) - were arrested for the murder of a Rakhine Buddhist woman Ma Thidar Htwe of Thapraychaung Village, Ramree Towship, Rakhine State in western Burma, whose killing last month helped set off communal violence in which nearly 60 people died, according to the state media.

    The three Muslims of the Rohingya minority were charged under Burmese Penal Code section 376 for rape, section 302 (1c) for murder and section 392 for looting properties. Htet Htet alias Rasheed committed suicide in his cell at Kyaukpyu prison.

    Mahmoud Rauhi and Kochi were sentenced to death under Penal Code section 302-1 (C). The verdict was handed down on the 18th of June in Rakhine State’s Kyaukphyu district, according to the state-run Myanma Ahlin daily.

    The two death-row inmates have the right to appeal against their death sentence to a court of higher jurisdiction within 7 days of the sentence. In the absence of an appeal against their death penalty, the two will be awaiting their execution at Sittwe prison.
