Munuara, 17 years old, is from a village near Rathidaung. Her husband was killed by the Myanmar military, she came to Bangladesh with her neighbour after that. She was beaten and gang-raped for 5 days by military in barracks near Rathidaung. Twenty other Rohingya girls were also present in the building and raped by a group of approx 30 military. She escaped after the military moved on to another location. Countless rape allegations have been consistently reported during the past months, an accusation the Myanmar authorities deny. Mass rape is often used during ethnic cleansing campaigns, both acts consitute crimes against humanity and war crimes when carried out by military personnel.
