Myanmar military accused of abductions

Muslim militants and government troops, to take refuge at a Buddhist monastery in Maungdaw located in Rakhine State near the Bangladesh border on October 15, 2016.
       The Myanmar military has been accused of detaining local aid workers and an ill man from Minbya township in Rakhine state on Tuesday night as the volunteers transported him to a hospital in Mrauk-U for treatment, RFA reported quoting relatives and residents of Kyaung Daung village.
       Six volunteers from a local funeral service organization were accompanying Hla Maung Win, a 30-year-old who works at Thabot Sar Taesu farm, from the village to the hospital after he came down with a severe illness, they said.
       Myanmar soldiers seized the seven along with their three drivers as they drove near Chaung Thit village about 9 p.m. local time Tuesday, according to the report.
       RFA said it was not able to independently confirm the accusations by relatives and villagers that Myanmar government soldiers had abducted the 10 people.
