    YANGON: Myanmar security forces have killed three people in raids on “terrorist” training camps run by Rohingya Muslim militants in the north of Rakhine state, state media reported on Thursday. Guns, ammunition and gunpowder were found at the camps in the Mayu Mountains, part of a remote strip of land on the northwest border that is mainly home to the persecuted Rohingya Muslim minority. The training camps found this week were allegedly run by the same group that carried out the October raids that killed nine policemen, according to state media. The militants, now called the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), were subsidized by “foreign monetary aids” and spent months training recruits in martial arts and the use of light weapons, according to the government report.
