Communal violence stopped by community
Sittwe , November 14:A brawl between an Arakanese student and a Muslim student was about to erupt into communal violence, but the community leaders managed to resolve the situation, according to our correspondent from Sittwe.
On October 29, in front of the Muslim mosque, on May Yu Street, Rae Nwe Zu Quarter, Sittwe, a 16 year old Arakanese high school student Kyaw Zin Khant (son of U Maung Nyunt of Rupa Taung Quarter) had a fight with a Muslim student of the same school (State High School No 1 of Sittwe).
The fight was spreading between the people from two communities siding with their respective students, but the elders and community leaders stopped it.
