Even Buddhists Are Sick Of Islam. Burn Mosque In Myanmar
A crowd of Buddhists has set fire to a mosque in the north of Myanmar, furious that a Muslim place of worship was built near a Buddhist pagoda in the predominantly Buddhist country. The attack happened on Friday, 1 July, in the village of Hpakhant in Kachin state.
The attackers, who were "wielding sticks, knives and other weapons", overwhelmed security forces before burning the temple down, according to state-owned Global New Light of Myanmar.
"The mob was unresponsive and entirely beyond control. The building was razed by the riotous crowd," according to the paper.
