It’s been almost 100 days since violence between rival groups erupted in India’s north-eastern state of Manipur. Up to 150 people are believed to have been killed and tens of thousands forced to flee their homes.
Members of the Kuki tribe believe their Christian faith is a major underlying reason for the violence against them. Three months in, some days are now quiet, but clashes still break out every second or third night.
A mass burial planned for Kuki victims was recently postponed after a fresh attack saw more houses set alight. The destruction has been widespread, with hundreds of houses and churches left in ruins. Up to 60-thousand people have been displaced. Around 7,000 have found refuge in government relief, while others have moved to safety in the neighbouring states.
