A second mass grave was discovered after Myanmar army shoots innocent Rohingyas to death
October 12, 2016
Maungdaw, Arakan -- A second mass grave had been found after Myanmar army had shot innocent Rohingyas to death. It was discovered in a Muslim cemetery located in the southern side of the East Mosque of Kanyin Tan Myoma village, Maungdaw Township, Arakan State.
On the 10th of October at 12am, approximately one dozen corpses were buried by military personnel. After arriving with five cars, they firstly surrounded the compound of the cemetery the make sure it was secure. Then, they broke up the lock of mosques gate and a car dropped down the corpses at the north-east side of the cemetery driving speedily through.
They then buried the bodies by digging a wide hole. The blood drops of the bodies was found significantly along the route where the bodies were dragged through.
The bodies were packed with white bags (used for rice in Myanmar). The quantity of the corps is believed to be approximately a dozen according to the villagers but is hard to recognize who they are.
On the same day in morning, around 9 am, millitary personnels closely shot seven Rohingyas to death in Myo Thu Gyi village, Maungdaw Township and they took four bodies away with their car.
It is frantically confusing to criticize about the reason of burying the bodies in Muslim´s cemetery. During 2012 communal violence, local security forces have killed hundreds of innocent Rohingyas and buried down them in several mass graves that were too far from Rohingya villages. But this time, the millitary forces buried down the corps in Muslims cemetery. What can be the reasons? Why?
The villagers are now in fear and worrying for such a strange incident of millitary personnels.
On the 10th of October, 2016, at noon, the first mass grave of three Rohingya corps was found in Kyauk Pyin Saik Village, northern Maungdaw Township.
