Military launched a sudden raid in the Rohingya settlement of Pungná cwéng near Akyab.
On Friday, military personal suddenly entered the village and started assaulting anyone and everyone that fell in front of them. No justification was given for the severe beatings inflicted on the Rohingyas.
Three people were arrested and taken away by the military. Their whereabouts are not known.
Pungná cwéng lies in the midst of hostile Rakhine territory. The army has long blockaded this village creating a near starvation situation for the Rohinhyas.
Locals say they eat very little food and skip meals. Many children in the village are malnourished.
