Two Buddhists have been arrested after Muslim shops were destroyed in northern Kachin State, police said on Saturday, in a new outbreak of religious violence, reported the Gulf Today. 

Myanmar is in the grip of acute religious tension after a deadly wave of unrest in March that saw monks and Buddhist mobs attack Muslim areas in violence that has edged towards the country’s main city Yangon.

A Buddhist villager nearby confirmed Muslim shops and houses were destroyed in three places in the area.
