Recent news stories from Burma say that "Buddhist mobs" are attacking foreign aid workers, and that shots fired by police to break up rioters may have been responsible for the death of an 11-year-old girl. Last week 40 buildings were attacked and 70 foreign aid workers were evacuated for their own safety.
The latest round of anti-Muslim violence in Burma was touched off last week when a foreign aid worker removed a Buddhist flag from in front of their offices. This was done the agency said, to express neutrality. There are warnings of a "humanitarian crisis" if the situation continues to spiral out of control.
I had hoped matters would calm down after a while but it seems they are getting worse.
