Aftermath in Mandalay. A Muslim cemetery in Myanmar and a school inside its compound were set on fire Friday evening after hundreds of Buddhists rode motorcycles around the city shouting death threats. Some shouted "We're going to kill all the Muslims," as they rode through the streets after attending the funeral of a Buddhist man stabbed to death Wednesday night. A Muslim man was also killed, beaten to death early on Thursday on his way to morning prayers. Inter-religious violence has flared throughout the country over the past two years. It is threatening to undermine political reforms. A buddhist monk has little hope. (SOUNDBITE) (Burmese) UNIDENTIFIED BUDDHIST MONK OF GALONE NI MONASTERY, SAYING: "The situation might get worse as the situation is still very tense from both the Buddhist and Muslim sides." While people of different faiths were able to sit down for talks, a Muslim leader sees few prospects for peace. (SOUNDBITE) (Burmese) LEADER OF MUSLIM NETWORK AND VICE CHAIRMAN OF INTERFAITH RELIGIONS GROUP, THEIN WIN AUNG, SAYING: "There is no safety for us. There are so many difficulties, even to conduct our Muslim funerals and conduct our prayers in the month of Ramadan. That's why I would say there is no peace for us." At least 240 people have been killed and more than 140,000 displaced since June 2012. Most of the victims have been Muslims, estimated to be about five percent of the population.
