Muslim-owned properties were destroyed on Tuesday in Okkan-video

 

The violence was sparked by an accident around 10 am when a Muslim woman on a bicycle knocked down a novice Buddhist monk in a market area, spilling the monk’s food, according to witnesses.

“The young monk was crying, and the woman didn’t apologize for what she did,” said Aung Zaw Oo, a merchant who runs a rice shop in the market.

Mosques and some Muslim-owned properties were destroyed on Tuesday in a town near Rangoon in the latest round of communal violence between Buddhists and Muslims.

“There’s no causalities so far, but people are fleeing their homes for fear of being under attack,”
