With her 8-year-old son’s head resting in her lap, Zubaida was sitting at home with some other women from her village in western Myanmar’s Rakhine state when the military came — and the gunfire started.
“All the men from the village started running away, and my son ran with them,” Zubaida, 25, says. He didn’t get far: Myanmar soldiers shot him dead — in the back.
That evening, the soldiers came back.
“They didn’t say anything,” she says. “They just came with their guns into my house.”
