Burmese Monks Protest Bangladesh Attacks

More than 100 monks in Burma demonstrated on Friday at Bangladesh’s embassy to protest recent attacks against Buddhist temples and homes in Burma’s South Asian neighbor. The monks staged the protest in reaction to Sept. 30 riots in Bangladesh’s coastal district of Cox’s Bazar. Thousands of Muslims there set fire to at least 10 temples and 40 homes due to anger over a photo of a burned Quran posted on Facebook, allegedly by a Buddhist. About 300 Buddhist monks in Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, staged a similar protest on Wednesday outside the regional office of the United Nations.—AP
