Rohingya crisis: Hindu survivors recount horrors of violence

New Delhi :  

The Hindus, who survived the massacre in small Hindu village in Kha Maung Seik in northern Rakhine state, recounted the horrors they went through during the violence.

One of the survivors, who was successful in fleeing the massacre, said that masked men entered their village on that horrific night and brutally hacked many to deaths. She said that the masked men were using machetes to massacre Hindus.

Eyewitnesses also confirmed about the bloodshed that happened in small Hindu village in Kha Maung Seik in northern Rakhine state. They said that the Myanmar authorities have confined 45 corpses to flames since Sunday.

The Army said that the evidences confirm the massacre by Muslim Rohingya militants on August 25. The insurgents also launched coordinated raids on police posts on the same day.

“After they took us to the hills, they butchered everyone. I saw it with my own eyes,” said one of the survivors to AFP. She said this at a small Hindu village in Cox’s Bazar near the sprawling Rohingya camps.

She said that more than 100 people were killed on that night and the corpses were dumped in freshly-dug pits. She added that they were targeted because they were Hindus.
