United to End Genocide is alarmed by the most recent anti-Muslim violence in Rakhine state in Burma which resulted in burning of a mosque and scores of homes, the displacement of hundreds, and at least 5 deaths including a 94-year old Muslim woman who was stabbed to death.

In a letter to the U.S. State Department, United to End Genocide President Tom Andrews urged that the latest violence be addressed through increased pressure on the Burmese government and establishment of an international Commission of Inquiry through the next UN General Assembly resolution on Burma.
