Mrauk-U, Arakan – Four Rohingya women were shot dead and five Rohingyas were severely injured by the police in Pa-Rein hamlet, Mrauk-U Township, Arakan State today at 3:30 pm.

According to the local sources, the police and the authorities had an agreement with Daw Thaw Yaybar to build temporary huts in the village. The agreement was solely made between the authorities and Daw Thaw Yaybar and local villagers were not aware of the agreement. And neither the authorities nor Daw Thaw Yaybar has informed the villagers about building temporary huts.

On 4th of June, the police brought the woods by boat to build the temporary huts. The police asked the villagers to unload the woods from the boat. The villagers realized why the police brought the woods and finally they refused to unload them. The villagers said that they used to live in the houses in the village which were destroyed during the violence and now they could not accept staying in such temporary huts.
