Zarni's 10-minute in-depth analysis on the ABC Radio on the renewed "communal" violence in Burma

UN condemns Burma violence as death toll rises

Updated 26 October 2012, 16:19 AEST 

As clashes spread in Burma's Rakhine state, dozens have reportedly been killed and hundreds of homes have been torched since Sunday.

Several people were killed overnight as violence erupted despite a night-time curfew in at least two towns. The latest clashes are the first serious outburst of violence since June when a state of emergency was declared in Rakhine after 90 people were killed. In response to the recent violence, a UN investigator has said the Burmese government is delaying crucial decisions to help reduce tensions in these volatile regions.
