On October 18, a group of seven Rohingya Muslims who were fleeing Myebon Township of Rakhine State, were arrested at a check-post in Aukpong, Chein Kint Town, Ayeyarwady Division.

The Rohingya men are arrested along with Bus Driver U Hla Myint and his assistant Yan Maung Tun in Pathein-Monywa Highway with 260 rice bags in the vehicle.

They are under police custody and investigation is underway in Chein Kint Town, Ayeyarwady Division.

The arrested Rohingya are as follows:
1.Mohammed Ali
2.Nur Amin
3.Abdu Raman
4.Sayedul Amin
5.Nurul Amin
6.Emam Hussein
7.Nur Bashar.

While nearly 600,000 Rohingya from Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung are expelled from Myanmar as the genocidal campaign takes place, majority of Rohingya in other parts of Rakhine State are living in IDP camps and ghettos like situations where there is no freedom of movement, livelihood, education, healthcare and security. Many Rohingya face with life and death in the region.
