Armed group fighting for Rohingya rights denies terrorist links


PETALING JAYA: An armed group fighting for Rohingya rights in Myanmar has denied links with any terrorist groups in the world, saying that its attacks are only against the "oppressive" Burmese Army.

The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa), as the group is known, said it did not commit acts of terrorism against civilians regardless of race and religion as it did not subscribe to "the notion of committing terrorism" for a cause it believed to be legitimate.
