OAKKAN, Myanmar: One person was killed and nine injured after mobs attacked mosques and burned homes in central Myanmar, authorities said on Wednesday, in the latest religious unrest to erupt in the nation.

Riots sparked on Tuesday in the small town of Oakkan, around 100 km north of Yangon after a woman accidentally knocked into a young monk, authorities said, amid acute Buddhist-Muslim tensions following a series of attacks in March.

“A man died in hospital of his injuries this morning,” a police official told AFP.

Authorities have arrested 18 people after some 77 homes in four villages in the region north of the commercial hub Yangon were burned during a spate of arson on Tuesday evening, president’s spokesman Ye Htut said in a Facebook update.
