In Karen News:
A group of 19 community based organizations has called for an official investigation into the destruction of religious buildings in Burma.
The statement was signed on behalf of a range of ethnic and human rights groups both local and international including Burma Campaign UK, Fortify Rights, and the Kachin Women’s Association of Thailand.
The statement comes after a spate of violent attacks against Muslim places of worship. On June 1, a violent mob attacked and destroyed a Muslim prayer hall in Kachin State, and another mob destroyed a Mosque in the Bago region.
