Former Guatemala Dictator Rios Montt Convicted of Genocide

Special Report: Myanmar gives official blessing to anti-Muslim monks

(Reuters) – The Buddhist extremist movement inMyanmar, known as 969, portrays itself as a grassroots creed.

Its chief proponent, a monk named Wirathu, was once jailed by the former military junta for anti-Muslim violence and once called himself the “Burmese bin Laden.”

But a Reuters examination traces 969’s origins to an official in the dictatorship that once ran Myanmar, and which is the direct predecessor of today’s reformist government. The 969 movement now enjoys support from senior government officials, establishment monks and even some members of the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD), the political party of Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

Violence used to instigate Myanmars


PETALING JAYA: The recent outbreak of violence involving Myanmar nationals here in Malaysia is being distorted and used to instigate the population back in Myanmar.

Blogs and social media platforms such as Facebook are being used to create the false impression that Myanmar nationals are being persecuted in Malaysia.

“They want to poison the minds of the people back home,” claimed a Myanmar national who has lived in Malaysia for more than a decade.

Most of the blogs and Facebook postings are in Burmese although theStar Online came across one which has posts in English

Sittwe. Keep out!

We are being followed. Everyone we speak to is then in turn spoken to. We are being watched, our movements, what we buy, what we say, what we eat. The regime is scared of something.
In Sittwe where the Rohingya Muslims were murdered last year the attitude towards us has further darkened. Some of the local Rakhine women, who first received us with smiles and waves, possibly thinking we were tourists, now have dropped all the niceties after word has gotten around that we are visiting the Rohingya IDP camps.
