2 Rohingya leaders go shopping for terror in Indonesia

By Zakir Hussain, Indonesia Bureau Chief In Jakarta

TWO Rohingya leaders travelled to Indonesia recently to meet hardline groups in the hope of enlisting their support and assistance. The militants were in the market for more fighters, guns, cash and bomb-making instructors.

The pair were identified as cleric Abu Arif and militant commander Abu Shafiyah, linked to the Rohingya Solidarity Organisation (RSO). They reportedly said that some 300 Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have been undergoing military training in Rakhine state to step up retaliatory attacks against Buddhists who had been persecuting them.

The visit, announced on the radical Ar Rahmah Media Network website, is another sign that Myanmar's sectarian clashes are spilling beyond its borders.
