At least one Rohingya Muslim was killed by a stray bullet and three others were wounded Wednesday when mortar shells fell on their village, burning more than 30 homes, in northern Rakhine state, RFA reported.

A resident of Buthidaung township’s Phone Nyo Leik village, a mostly Muslim community near Kyarnyobyin and Thayatpyin villages where shelling blasts set houses ablaze, died Thursday after being hit by a bullet during the latest clash between Myanmar forces and the rebel Arakan Army (AA), villagers said.

Phone Nyo Leik leaders told RFA’s Myanmar Service that Sean Shu Arlong, who was in his 40s, was working outside the community village and was hit by the bullet while he was sitting at a nearby food stand.
