Breaking News-Muslim Students were burned to death

Security bars blocked most of the white building's windows, which were marked by black smoke in the late morning. The building burned from the inside, and firefighters had extinguished the flames before dawn.

Mosque member Soe Myint said most of the children were sleeping on the ground floor when the blaze began and they were able to flee to safety.
But 16 of them were sleeping in a small loft on the first floor and were trapped when the ladder that led to the loft caught fire. Three boys jumped to safety, he said, and the rest died.

Police officer Thet Lwin, who was at the scene before dawn, said the fire was triggered by an electrical short "and (was) not due to any criminal activity".
Every time he mentioned the word "electrical short", though, angry Muslims shouted and began banging on vehicles with their fists.

Zaw Min Htun, a member of a local Muslim youth organisation, said he raced to the mosque early on Tuesday after hearing it was on fire.

"Muslims are very angry," he said, calling on authorities to investigate what happened. "The children are innocent .... Someone burned the mosque."
Zaw Min Htun said he saw no burned wires inside the mosque and said the building's fuse box was in good condition.
