The Rakhine and Chakma ethnic community in Maungtaw staged a protest outside the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Maungtaw yesterday against a deadly attack in early June on the Chakma ethnic tribe living in Chittagaung hilly areas in Bangladesh.
With permission from authorities, about 300 people took to the streets and gathered outside the office of UNHCR, chanting slogans and holding placards.
