More than 60 houses in a predominantly Hindu village in the Maungdaw district of Myanmar’s Rakhine state were gutted by fire on Thursday in an apparent act of negligence, a local community leader told RFA’s Myanmar Service.

Local Hindus, including Ni Maul, and the Myanmar government in late September said ARSA militants detained nearly 100 people from several Hindu villages in the Kha Maung Seik village tract on the same day that the attacks occurred, killed most of them, and dumped their corpses in mass graves.

The militants also forced the young Hindu women to convert to Islam and took them to a Muslim refugee camp in Bangladesh. Other Hindus fled to Bangladesh or to other parts of Rakhine state to escape the violence.
