    Two dozen corpses believed to be the bodies of Rohingya women and children have washed up on a Bangladesh riverbank as fears grow of atrocities committed by Myanmar forces against the Muslim minority across the border.

    In the deadliest violence in decades, nearly 400 people have been killed in a week of fighting in Myanmar’s north-west Rakhine state after Rohingya insurgents attacked security forces and the military responded with a huge counter-offensive.

    Close to 38,000 Rohingya have fled their villages and attempted to cross into Bangladesh, according to United Nations estimates. World powers have warned Aung San Suu Kyi’s government to avoid killing innocent civilians.

    The latest outpouring of refugees comes amid reports of ethnic violence from an activist group with a presence in the conflict area, accusing Myanmar security forces and Buddhist vigilantes of killing 130 Rohingya in the village of Chut Pyin.

    “We were told that the army encircled the village and attacked people when they fled,” said Chris Lewa, director of the Arakan Project, an advocacy group set up to work with the Rohingya.

    “According to our information from the ground, at least 130 were killed, most of them died from gunshot wounds,” she said of the incident which occurred on Sunday. “The figure is collected from a list of people who have been buried.”

    Myanmar is creating a breeding ground for ISIS and looking like an ass while doing it.

    It would be one thing if they were building camps for these people but they aren't, they are just fleeing for their lives.

    First of all, it was not a Myanmar, but Brits, who allow migration in Myanmar from Bangladesh.
    Traditional Myanmar society recognize "Rohingya" as "illegal migrants", and don't give them citisentship until they are not assimilated. Myanmar is a poor country they can't waste many money for illegal migrants, and Myanmar is a warm country - anybody can live there in hats, made from sticks and clay.
    Conflict became hotter (especially in media) when China and Myanmar start to build oil and natural gas pipesystem to avoid necesserity of using US-Fleet controlled strait of Malacca.
    So, I have no seriouse doubts, that Islamist militants in Myanmar are trained, sponsored and guided by KSA and USA.
