The AT Correspondent from Buthidaung reports:
At least three Rohingya villages have been burnt down by Myanmar military, Border Guard Police (BGP) and Rakhine extremists in Buthidaung Township today, 11 September at around 1.30 pm.
Khaung Ta Kar, Padin, Kunkarfara, Bood Deil and Gojjondia villages in Maungdaw south have also been burnt down by Myanmar military, BGP and Rakhine extremists.
They set devastating fire to Rohingya homes at NgaYanChaung, MaungNaMa and ZeeGon village tracts in Northern Buthidaung causing thousands of Rohingyas homeless today. The Rohingya residents have entered into the forest nearby where they are also suffering in the rain.
According to report, 95% of Rohingya homes in Maungdaw and Rathedaung of Northern Arakan State have been completely burnt down causing more than 300, 000 Rohingyas from Maungdaw only flee to Bangladesh.
Another report says all the Rohingya villages in Rathedaung Township have also been torched to ashes rendering the people homeless who have mostly come to Maungdaw and now stranding along the Alay Than Kyaw sea beach waiting to cross into Bangladesh.
After burning down the villages in Maungdaw and Rathedaung, the Myanmar armed forces along with Rakhine extremists has started setting to fire to Rohingya remaining homes in Buthidaung.
Currently, over 300,000 Rohingyas have already fled violence of Myanmar security forces and crossed into Bangladesh mostly from Maungdaw south and north.
Tens of thousands of Rohingyas are also waiting along the sea shore to flee to Bangladesh but they are unfortunately not able to do so as they are not capable to pay the huge amount of boat fares, says a Rohingya from the awaiting crowd.
