Two members of Burma (Myanmar)’s security forces were injured in a clash with militants on the troubled Rakhine State border with Bangladesh, Burma’s state counselor’s office said, casting doubt on the government’s claim that the region had stabilised.

The government last week said the situation in northern Rakhine had stabilised and that it had ended a four-month security crackdown on Rohingya Muslims.

The security operation had been under way since nine policemen were killed in attacks on security posts near the Bangladesh border on Oct. 9. Almost 69,000 Rohingyas have since fled to Bangladesh, according to U.N. estimates.

The United Nations has said the security crackdown may amount to crimes against humanity and possibly ethnic cleansing.
