Petrol Bomb thrown at Myanmar Embassy as anger grows over Rohingya Muslims plight
JAKARTA: A petrol bomb was thrown at Myanmar’s embassy in the Indonesian capital Jakarta early Sunday, police said, as anger grew across the mainly Muslim archipelago about violence against Rohingyas in Myanmar.
No one was injured in the incident, said Jakarta police spokesman Argo Yuwono.
A patrolling police officer saw fire at the rear terrace on the second floor and immediately informed police who were guarding the embassy.
“We are still trying to catch the perpetrator,” Yuwono told AFP.
Indonesians are becoming inreasingly concerned at the treatment of the Rohingya, a stateless Muslim minority in mainly Buddhist Myanmar.
