U.N. warns aid workers of rising Buddhist hostility in western Myanmar


YANGON (Reuters) - The United Nations has warned aid workers in western Myanmar of rising hostility and imminent protests from troubled Rakhine state's majority Buddhists, some of whom say humanitarian agencies are giving support to Rohingya Muslim militants.

Reuters has obtained the text of a "precautionary security notification" distributed to the 300 or so U.N. staff and to international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) in Rakhine on Wednesday.
