Natala villagers harass in Maungdaw south

Maungdaw, Arakan State: A group of Natala villagers from Sommana and Udaung villages have been harassing Rohingya villagers at night, said a local elder on condition of anonymity.
“The Natala villagers are going to different Rohingya villages where they (Natala villagers) try to torch houses at midnight while villagers sleep.”

According to sources from the area, a group of Natala villagers went to Khonza Bill (village) on May 7, at about 11: 30 pm and try to attack some villagers where the Rohingya villagers screamed and gathered on the spot, saw Natala villagers were holding long swords and other lethal weapons.

“The Rohingya villagers were very afraid for doing anything in the village against Rohingya by Natala villagers”.

Besides, yesterday the concerned authority prohibited the villagers not to cross the main road –Maungdaw Aley Than Kyaw highway- for security reason through the village admin officer, a village admin office member said.

Any Rohingya who crossed the main road towards the mountainside, he/she will be fired by the authority, the officer said.

A daily worker said on condition of anonymity, “I go to forest every day to collect firewood without knowledge of concerned authority. If I don’t go to forest a day, I will  face starvation with my family members.”
