A militant group says it will keep fighting the Myanmar government.

A militant group from Myanmar's mostly Muslim Rohingya minority says it will keep fighting the government. Attacks by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army last year sparked military reprisals that drove about 650,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh. At least 6,700 Rohingya were reportedly killed in the month after last August's violence. The group, seen as terrorists by Myanmar's government, say they are fighting for Rohingya political rights.
