A team of local and foreign journalists yesterday visited the Taung Pyo Letwe Reception Centre and met with local communities in Maungtaw Township.
During their visit to Taung Pyo Letwe, they interviewed the reception centre’s in-charge U Soe Tun. They also visited houses built for returnees in the Kyeinchaungtaung Village.
In the afternoon, they headed to Shwezar Village and met with local ethnic Rakhine people, Hindus, and Muslims residing there. The group included mediapersons from Courrier Japon, Nishinipon Shimbun, Nippon TV, VOA, BBC, MRTV, MITV, MIR, and MNA.
This is the 34th visit by mediapersons to Maungtaw. They have visited the township once in 2016, eight times in 2017, 20 times in 2018, and five times so far this year. —MNA
