Many Rohingyas in the Kyauktaw township have lost all their livestock after being robbed by Rakhine miscreants.
Taking advantage of the flood, Rakhine miscreants took away cattle belonging to Rohingyas stranded near the town on Friday.
The Rakhines were themselves escaping the floods. But as they passed through Rohingya settlements, they took away the cattle in broad daylight.
Many of the Rohingyas who became victim of this robbery say the cattle were the only asset they had.
One man unwilling to be identified says, “the floods have destroyed everything. Now the only thing we had left, the Maghs (Rakhines) took away.”
