Malaysia’s Rohingyas “To Save Rohingyas in Rakhine”


An ethnic Rohingya, from Myanmar and living in Malaysia, cries during a rally to stop the killings and violence toward the Muslim Rohingyas in Myanmar, near the Myanmar’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur June 15, 2012. Thousands of displaced Muslim Rohingyas and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists were in need of food, water and shelter in northwestern Myanmar on Thursday after fleeing the country’s worst sectarian clashes in years. Houses were burnt down late on Wednesday in two villages near the Bangladesh border, but there were no reports of further deaths. Scores of people are feared to have died in the rioting that broke out in Rakhine state on June 8. REUTERS/Bazuki Muhammad (MALAYSIA)
