Artillery fire in Rathedaung township in northern Rakhine sparked fires that destroyed 24 houses, but there were no casualties, residents said.
People in Kyauk Tan village have fled their homes, fearing more attacks, said U Thaung Shay, a villager whose house burned down.

“My house burned yesterday when an artillery shell hit it,” he said. “Now we are seeking help from other villagers to clear our destroyed homes.”

He accused the Tatmadaw (military) of firing the heavy artillery in retaliation for a landmine explosion that injured troops in nearby Tharzi village on Sunday.
