Rohingya man recounts ‘horror’ of Myanmar Army crackdown


PV International Desk : A Rohingya man, who has fled a crackdown on insurgents after attacks on security forces in Myanmar, has said the army is killing civilians indiscriminately at Rakhine state.

Moktar Hossain, who received a bullet injury in front of his house at Medi in Maungdaw early on Friday, recounted the experience at Chittagong Medical College Hospital in Bangladesh on Saturday.

He said he crossed the border with two other bullet-hit Rohingyas through Unchhi Parha of Teknaf. They walked all the way from their village to Bangladesh.

The three were given first aid at Médecins Sans Frontières hospital at the Kutupalong refugee camp.

Moktar and another person with bullet wound, Mohammad Musa, were later transferred to CMCH where Musa died.
