Victims Criticize Myanmar Government over Ethnic Strife

Say nation isn't doing enough to stop violence between Buddhists, Muslims

|

Victims of ethnic clashes in western Myanmar lashed out at the government for failing to prevent violence between Muslims and Buddhists that has displaced more than 32,000 people over the last week.

The crisis, which erupted in June, has raised international concern and posed one of the biggest challenges yet to Myanmar's reformist President Thein Sein, who inherited power from a xenophobic military junta last year.
