Buddhists in Myanmar protest against aid agencies

Buddhists in Myanmar protested in their hundreds across 15 towns on Sunday against aid agencies, accusing them of supporting Rohingya Muslims allied fighters, Reuters reported. 

Protests also took place in the capital city of Rakhine state which has been the focal point for much of the violations against Rohinya Muslims. 

Protesters have called for aid agences to leave the region. 

Last week, hundreds of soldiers were deployed to Rakhine after the government said security needed to be tightened. 

In July, the bodies of seven Buddhists were found 'hacked to death', Reuters added.
