Activists liken Myanmar violence to Ku Klux Klan

Activists have likened Myanmar’s worsening sectarian violence to the Ku Klux Klan racist movement in the US during the 1960s.

If the violence is not halted soon, it will divide the country ahead of general elections in 2015, they told a recent forum in Bangkok.

Smile Education and Development Foundation representative Myo Win said the recent explosion of Buddhist rage against Muslim Rohingya in his country was tearing his nation apart.
