(07-03 12:32)

Two people have been killed during Buddhist-Muslim violence in Myanmar's second-largest city of Mandalay, police said Thursday. "There are two dead,'' a police officer, who did not want to be named, said by telephone, without providing further details.
Police fired rubber bullets on Wednesday to disperse hundreds of rioters, some armed with sticks and knives, who took to the streets and attacked a Muslim teashop after an accusation of rape, the authorities said. --AFP
