Muslim homes burned to ground in Burma violence


Buddhist crowds have attacked Muslim properties and a mosque in a town north of Burma's largest city, Rangoon.

The anti-Muslim violence broke out in Oakkan, north of Rangoon, after a Muslim girl on a bike bumped into a monk.

It is the latest in a series of attacks on Muslim communities since 40 people were killed in clashes in central Burma last month.
