Yangon   –      Myanmar Authorities said there was no sign of attacks by Rohingya militants on Tuesday as a one-month insurgent ceasefire came to an end.

The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) announced the ceasefire from Sept. 10, to facilitate aid deliveries to Rakhine State, where their attacks on the security forces on Aug. 25 triggered a ferocious government crackdown.

The government offensive in the north of Rakhine State has sent some 520,000 Rohingya civilians fleeing to Bangladesh and has drawn international condemnation and U.N. accusations of ethnic cleansing.

The government denied accusation of ethnic cleansing, and had rebuffed the insurgents’ ceasefire, saying it would not negotiate with terrorists.

Myanmar says more than 500 people have been killed in the violence since late August.

Even before the government offensive, the small, lightly armed ARSA had only appeared capable of hit-and-run raids on security posts and unable to mount any sort of sustained challenge to the army.
