MINBYA β€” An explosion believed to be landmine hunted lives of three Rohingya in Deil Fara village of Minbya township, Rakhine state on March 10, 2020, at around 3:00 p.m. while injuring one.

The victims killed are Mohammad Kasim, 24, Nurul Haque; Mohammad Rafique, 14, son of Qurban Ali; and Dolaya, 12, Nur Huson.

Another elderly man in his late fifties called Qurban Ali, son of Sultan is injured deathly.

As the fighting between Tatmadaw and Rakhine rebels intensified in this region, the landmine is believed to be planted by either of them.

A Rohingya teenager was killed and four others injured in another explosion in Palaung Taw hamlet, Paung Htoke village tract of Mrauk-U on 6th March at around 8:00 a.m.

This is not the first incident of its kind as there have been frequent landmine explosions in the northern townships of Arakan since the armed conflicts between local rebels and government security forces started.

There are mutual accusations and denial to have the responsibility of the landmines planted in public areas that effect neither of the fighting groups but hunt the lives of the innocent Rohingya civilians.
