Police say two men have been killed following violence believed to be religiously motivated in Myanmar’s second city of Mandalay.
Clashes began on Tuesday evening as commercial property belonging to Muslims were raided and left five people injured and were sparked by a claim on social media that a Buddhist woman was raped by some Muslim men.
Local police say that a man has been charged with rape but there is no confirmation on his religion.
Myanmar has seen several outbreaks of violence targeting the minority Muslim population in the past three years; in 2013 there were reported attacks from the towns of Meiktila and Kanbalu.
