Calm returns to violence-scarred Myanmar town
A woman carries a luggage on her head as she walks on the debris of burnt buildings in Htan Gone village of Kantbalu township, Sagaing division, Myanmar, Monday, Aug. 26, 2013. Members of a 1,000-strong Buddhist mob torched dozens of homes and shops in northwestern Myanmar following rumors that a Muslim man tried to sexually assault a young woman, officials and witnesses said, as the country was once again gripped by sectarian violence. The rioters, who sang the country's national anthem as they rampaged, dispersed after security forces arrived early Sunday, shooting into the air. No injuries were reported.
