Between 2,000 and 3,000 Muslims were killed in Myanmar's Rakhine state in last three days, the European Rohingya Council said Monday on 28 August 2017

Council spokeswoman Anita Schug told Anadolu Agency between 2,000-to-3,000 Muslims had died in Rakhine state, and thousands other had been injured in what she described as a "slow-burning genocide".

"It [the situation in Rakhine] is an ongoing slow-burning genocide," Schug said, accusing Myanmar's military of being behind the deaths.

She said almost a thousand Muslims were killed on Sunday in Saugpara village, Rathedaung alone.

More than a 100,000 civilians have been displaced in Rakhine, while another 2,000 Muslims are trapped on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border which was closed by the Bangladeshi government, Schug added.

She also said a hundred villagers from Auk Nan Yar were taken to an unknown location on Wednesday, adding there were concerns for their safety.

Deadly attacks on border posts in western Myanmar's Rakhine state broke out on Friday, resulting in mass civilian casualties.

Later, media reports emerged saying Myanmar security forces used disproportionate force and displaced thousands of Rohingya Muslim villagers, destroying homes with mortars and machine guns.

A security clampdown launched in October last year in Maungdaw, where Rohingya form the majority, led to a U.N. report on human rights violations by security forces that indicated crimes against humanity.

The U.N. itself also documented mass gang rape, killings, including that of babies and children, brutal beatings and disappearances. Rohingya representatives have said approximately 400 people were slain during the operation.

The Rohingya are the world's largest stateless community and of one of its most persecuted minorities.

To safe the innocent muslims, we demand a quick and rapid military action against the massacre.
