MRAUK-U, Myanmar (Reuters) - When 35-year-old Ah Hla showed up to a police station in western Myanmar in late April hoping to see her husband among the prisoners, she didn't know whether he was alive or dead. Several dozen men, including her fisherman husband, had been detained weeks earlier when the military raided their village in central Rakhine state's Mrauk-U township and accused them of belonging to a rebel army, residents told Reuters. 'I went there with the hope that I am going to see my husband, but he was not there,' said Ah Hla, who had walked to the police station with a group of relatives of the detained men.
