Maungdaw, Arakan – A staged video shoot took place in Maungdaw Township of Arakan state by the authorities and Rakhines group. 

Today at 8:30 am a video shoot started in Maungdaw Township. The video was being shot at Myoma stadium and north eastern side of stadium. The scene they filmed imitated firing at a Rakhine crowd by the Hlun Htain police. 

Specifically, the filming was of a group of about 300 Rakhines who were chanting and coming from the west side of the road while holding swords and sticks. About 100 Hlun Htain police spread into three lines in front of Rakhine group. The Hlun Htaine opened fire into the air and each time they fired at least two Rakhines fell down. Some people picked the people who had fallen. 

The filming was from 8:30 am to 11 am. Local Rohingya residents fear it is to cover up something in front of international community. They are very concerned about possible reasons Rakhine and Police would want to stage such an event.
