Burma faces worst unrest in years
UN chief Ban Ki-moon’s special adviser to Burma Vijay Nambiar has arrived in Arakan state on Wednesday to visit Maungdaw, where the riots began last week.
On Wednesday, influential Buddhist and Muslim leaders in Burma also have called for an end of current violence in western Burma. According to latest reports, the condition of violence in Arakan State seem stable today and there is no possibility of escalating violence in other part of Burma as security are heavily restricted in respective areas.
Burma's state-run newspapers, The New Light of Myanmar reported that 4,100 people who lost homes had taken refuge in Buddhist monasteries, schools and in a police headquarters in the towns of Maungdaw and nearby Buthidaung.
