MOSQUES TORCHED IN DEADLY MYANMAR RIOTS

Labels:
Five people, including a Buddhist monk, were killed and at least three mosques were destroyed after riots broke out in a town in central Myanmar, police said.
Around 200 people fought in the streets after an argument in a Muslim-owned gold shop turned violent in Meiktila on Wednesday, according to a post on the Myanmar Police Force's Facebook page.
"One injured monk and Than Myint Naing, 26, who were being treated for their injuries died from their burns at hospital," it said.
Police imposed a curfew from evening to early morning to control the situation.
"People tried to burn down the mosques," one local police officer told the AFP news agency.
Al Jazeera's correspondent Wayne Hay, reporting from Bangkok, said that a state of emergency has been put in place and many people are said to be leaving the town.
