Myanmar's Muslims fret about mistreatment

Those living in Yangon, the country's largest city, are worried that they may become targets of attacks by Buddhists.

    Religious violence in Myanmar is moving closer to its largest city, Yangon.

    Fighting between Muslims and Buddhists erupted last year in neighbouring Rakhine state.

    Since then, hundreds of people have been killed and more than 100,000 displaced.

    Those living inside Yangon are growing increasingly nervous.
