Order restored after fresh Myanmar religious unrest

HTAN KONE, Myanmar (Reuters) – Authorities restored order in Myanmar’s northern Sagaing region on Sunday after a Buddhist mob set fire to nearly two dozen Muslim-owned buildings and attacked rescue workers in the latest widening of sectarian violence in the former military-run state.

 

About 1,000 Buddhists, some carrying sticks and swords, attacked Muslim villagers in remote Htan Kone late on Saturday, destroying at least 20 homes and shops, according to witnesses and a government statement.

 

Police and soldiers arrived later and fired into the air to disperse the crowd, they said.

So whats the problem?
