A sticker of the "969 movement" is seen at a shop in Minhla 
A sticker of the "969 movement" is seen at a shop in Minhla March 29, 2013. Since 42 people were killed in violence that erupted in Meikhtila town on March 20, unrest led by hardline Buddhists has spread to at least 10 other towns and villages in central Myanmar, with the latest incidents only a two-hour drive from Yangon. Minhla endured about three hours of violence on both Wednesday and Thursday. About 500 of Minhla township's 100,000 people are Muslims, said a police officer, who estimated two-thirds of those Muslims had fled. The number '969' is derived from Buddhism - which refers to various attributes of the Buddha, his teachings and the monkhood - but it has come to represent a radical form of anti-Islamic nationalism which urges Buddhists to boycott Muslim-run shops and services.
