Indonesia: Scuffles break out at Rohingya Muslim solidarity rally in Jakarta

Dozens of protesters scuffled with police at a rally in solidarity with Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims, in front of the Myanmar Embassy in Jakarta, Saturday. Protesters urged the Myanmar government take immediate action over the persecution of Rohingya Muslims. One demonstrator set fire to pictures of Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, who they labelled «The inhuman lady». The resurfacing... Еще of violence in Myanmar is being blamed on last week's attack on the country's police force that left 12 officers dead. The Myanmar military claims to be targeting Rohingya militants in response, leading to widespread reports of wide scale killings, arson, looting and rape in Rohingya villages. The number of Rohingya Muslims crossing into Bangladesh since last week's eruption of violence in Rakhine state has reached 40,000, according to UN estimates.
