Pho Thein Aung, Rakhine IDP: “Our story isn’t being told”

SITTWE, 27 May 2013 (IRIN) – Pho Thein Aung, 67, a father of three, recalls in vivid detail the day an angry mob of Rohingya Muslims gathered outside his home during last year's sectarian violence in Myanmar's western Rakhine State. Today he is one of more than 1,200 ethnic Rakhine internally displaced persons (IDPs) at the Set Yone Su camp outside Sittwe, the provincial capital.
