Summary
In June 2012, deadly violence erupted between Arakanese Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims in four townships of Burma's Arakan State. When violence resumed in October, it engulfed nine more townships and became a coordinated campaign to forcibly relocate or remove the state's Muslims. This report is based on more than 100 interviews with Rohingya and Kaman Muslims, Arakanese, and others in Burma. It describes how Arakanese political party operatives, the Arakanese Buddhist sangha (order of monks), and ordinary citizens cooperated in violence against Muslims, at times supported by government officials and state security forces. Entire Muslim villages, homes, businesses, and mosques were razed and scores of Rohingya men, women, and children were killed. Human Rights Watch has new evidence of the existence of four mass-grave sites in Arakan State. The Rohingya have been effectively denied citizenship under Burma's 1982 Citizenship Law, rendering them stateless. At least 125,000 Rohingya are living in overcrowded camps that lack adequate food, shelter, water and sanitation, and medical care, and tens of thousands of others have fled the country by sea. Many of the crimes documented in this report amount to crimes against humanity carried out as part of a campaign of ethnic cleansing. Human Rights Watch calls on the Burmese government to urgently end abuses by state security forces and punish those responsible, ensure access to humanitarian organizations, and amend discriminatory provisions in its citizenship law
