We are today into the fifth day of the Myanmar military's full blown offensives on the Rohingya population across Northern Arakan. What we have been witnessing since August 25 are widespread arson attacks on Rohingya villages, horrific massacres and summary excutions of (Rohingya) civilians and unimaginable horrors of countless atrocity crimes.

Below are the reports we have recieved so far on the fourth day (August 29, 2017).

1- 8:30am 29/8/2017: The Myanmar military carried out mass summary executions of 130 Rohingya men between the age of 10 and 90.l at 'Maung Nu' hamlet of 'Chin Thama' village in Buthidaung on 27th August 2017.

The dead bodies were taken away to their Battallion Base at the Chin Thama village after the summary executions. And More than 60 women were moslested and their jewelries and money were looted by the military.

2- 8am 29/8/2017: Myanmar military and Rakhine extremists continue to set fire on 'Koe Tan Kauk,' 'Tha Wan Chaung' & 'Inn Din' in Rathedaung.
