Rohingya villages erased, replaced by army bases in Rakhine State

ROHINGYA Muslim villages in Rakhine State are being bulldozed and replaced by military bases, roads and heavily guarded refugee reception centres, according to a new report released by human rights group Amnesty International. Satellite imagery released by Amnesty on Monday as part of its Remaking Rakhine State report suggests that abandoned Muslim villages are rapidly being cleared and replaced by government infrastructure, with the region becoming “militarised at an alarming pace”. Rakhine State remains among the poorest in Burma (Myanmar) and the government of Aung San Suu Kyi has pledged to invest in rebuilding the region after “clearing operations” by the Tatmadaw army devastated scores of Rohingya villages, leaving them deserted. Nevertheless, Amnesty’s report suggests that rebuilding and development in the Rakhine will be at the expense of refugees.
