Eyewitnesses are saying the boat capsize that killed four Rohingya girls on Monday near Mes para in Kyauktaw was no accident at all.
According to the eyewitnesses interviewed by our correspondents, the manual passenger boat (sampan) was rammed by a motorised boat driven by Rakhines that rammed with full speed with every intention of hitting the Rohingyas.
There were around 30 girls in the boat when it capsized. Most of them managed to swim to safety or were rescued by bystanders but four did not make it.
The incident is creating grief and anger throughout Rohingya neighbourhoods in the area.
