Rakhine Insurgency - Hotbed for Terrorism?

On October 9th, a series of coordinated attacks targeting border posts along Myanmar's Rakhine state border, have left nine Myanmar police officers dead. The attack was believed to be the work of the Rohingya Solidarity Organisation (RSO). BFM explores the possibility that the attack was the start of militant insurgency in the region, as well as the implications of this attack on regional security.

This is a report by Jason Lim, Sharaad Kuttan, Wan Irdina, and Lyn Mak.
