Rakhine state authorities impose nighttime curfew in five townships on April 2; heightened security measures and nightly movement restrictions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/4/2019, 12h00 until 10/6/2019, 11h59 (Asia/Rangoon). COUNTRY/REGION Ponnagyun, Rathedaung, Kyauktaw, Minbya, Mrauk-U (Rakhine state), Rakhine

Event

Authorities in Rakhine state imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew in five townships beginning on Tuesday, April 2, including in Kyauktaw, Ponnagyun, Rathedaung, Minbya and Mrauk-U. The curfew in the affected areas will reportedly be in place from 21:00 to 05:00 (local time) and will remain in place for at least two months. Heightened security measures and nightly movement restriction are to be expected in the coming weeks.

Context

The curfew was imposed following recent clashes between the troops of the regular army and the Arakan Army.

Violence resumed in early December 2018 between Rakhine separatists and the military. The Arakan Army seeks greater autonomy for Buddhists in Rakhine state. According to the Myanmar office of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), about 7500 displaced people are scattered across 29 sites in Rakhine due to the violence and 730,000 people in neighboring Bangladesh.

Advice

Individuals in Rakhine state are advised to monitor the situation, prepare for nightly movement restrictions, and adhere to instructions by local authorities.

Travelers are advised to avoid all but essential travel to Rakhine state, except the southern townships of Kyaukpyu, Ramree, Munaung, Toungup, Thandwe (including the tourist resort of Ngapali), and Gwa.
