#Myanmar cracks-down on brutal #Islamics

Gathering outside the Myanmar Embassy in Jakarta, the demonstrators, mostly hijab-clad women, chanted, “God is great!” and demanded the Indonesian government put pressure on neighboring Myanmar to stop the military operation that has sent tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees streaming into camps in Bangladesh — the second such exodus in the last 12 months.

“We are here because of solidarity of Muslims,” said one demonstrator who gave her name as Mama Bahin.

The latest crackdown began after Rohingya insurgents attacked police posts in western Myanmar’s Rakhine state, killing 12 police officers.
