Maung Daw According to a reporter from Nga Kura village, today (on 18 Dec 2013) at around 8:00pm, the bazaar of Nga Kura village under Maung Daw Township was set on fire by an unknown man. Only a side of a shop was burnt while the villagers immediately could take the fire under control to save other shops of the bazaar. Almost all the shops of the bazaar are Rohingya Muslim.
Suddenly an unknown man came and set the bazaar on fire then immediately absconds. The villagers think that the unknown man is none but any Rakhine extremist .the government has deployed the military personals from Buthidaung and Maung Daw Township at the Bangladesh-Myanmar border since the violence outbreak in the Rakhine state of Myanmar.
